Ten random things: February 6

Ten cover songs in my music library:

  1. David Lee Roth, "Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody" (originally recorded by Louis Prima)
  2. Aimee Mann and Michael Penn, "Two of Us" (originally recorded by the Beatles)
  3. Alien Ant Farm, "Smooth Criminal" (originally recorded by Michael Jackson)
  4. The Honeydrippers, "Sea of Love" (originally recorded by Phil Phillips)
  5. Brian Setzer Orchestra, "Jump, Jive, an' Wail" (originally recorded by Louis Prima)
  6. Social Distortion, "Ring of Fire" (originally recorded by Anita Carter)
  7. Great Big Sea, "End of the World" (originally recorded by R.E.M.)
  8. Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, "Some of Shelly's Blues" (originally recorded by Michael Nesmith)
  9. They Might Be Giants, "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" (originally recorded by the Four Lads)
  10. Sheryl Crow, "You Can Close Your Eyes" (originally recorded by James Taylor)

Technically, Louis Prima was not the first person to record either "Just a Gigolo" or "I Ain't Got Nobody," but it was him to first combined them as a medley, and it was his version that David Lee Roth covered.
