day 02 – your least favorite song
American Pie by Madonna
I hate bad covers. Mind you, I am not against covers. Joan Jett did some great covers for example. There is a trick to it though. You have to get the original song as well as have a firm grasp on your own style and on top of it add something to it. A good cover isn’t an easy thing. This Madonna song is a great example of how to do it wrong. There is obviously no internalizing of the lyrics. No understanding of the original. Might as well be sleep walking through it. Sounds like a bad advert jingle. Madonna, what were you thinking?
