Music - Cure covers, Goth stuff

I was looking for some Cure covers for a friend of mine, even though most of these will probably horrify and sadden her. ;-D
But some are very cool, like the Tricky version of "Love Cats" and Snake River Conspiracy on "Love Song."

Cure covers - zip file.
Track list:
1. Love Cats - Tricky. Cool and trippy.
2. Love Cats (Live) - Jamie Cullum & Katie Melua. Fun and lighthearted.
3. Love Song - Tori Amos. Eh. Not a good match, if you ask me, but here it is.
4. Love Song - Death Cab for Cutie. Awww. Love! This one works really nicely.
5. Love Song (Live) - A Perfect Circle. Not the best quality, but still interesting.
6. Love Song - Snake River Conspiracy. Very cool electronica/industrial take on this. Sexy!
7. Love Song - Jack off Jill. A tad more electric than The Cure, with some rawk vocals.
8 Lullaby (Live) - Trinkets of Joy with Spiderman. I know nothing about this band but still worth a listen.
9. Just Like Heaven - Taking Back Sunday. Another 'meh' cover. The original is just impossible to top.
10. The Hanging Garden - AFI. Nice update.

And since it's the merry month of Halloween, I thought I'd share some old school Goth/New Wave with you all:



A Person Isn't Safe Anywhere These Days - The Chameleons
Over the Wall - Echo and the Bunnymen
Spellbound - Siouxsie and the Banshees
Pornography - The Cure

And ... comment if you want any of these. I'm too tired to upload right now. :-/
Mask - Bauhaus
Ulysses - Dead Can Dance
Ivo - Cocteau Twins
Song to the Siren - This Mortal Coil
She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult
Alone Again Or - The Damned
Dead Souls - Joy Division
Leave Me Alone - New Order
Haunted When the Minutes Drag - Love & Rockets
Cut the Tree - Wolfgang Press

Want some more Cure covers? ;D

I've got Jimmy Paige and Robert Plant's cover of "Lullaby" *Tempts tempts*

Ditto about Tori's cover of Love Song. I adore most of her covers (have you ever heard her sing "Wild Horses" or "Can't Get You Out of My Head?") but her cover of that song is kinda meh.

Oooh, I'd love to hear that! Thanks! ;-D

Tori and the Cure is not a good match at all. Someone also sent me her cover of "Enjoy the Silence" (Depeche Mode) and I wasn't into that either. I haven't heard the covers you mention but they seem like they'd be better. I just grabbed a live cover of "Wild Horses" by Chris Cornell and the Lovemongers -- do you have that one? Since I feel about Chris the way uberaeryn feels about Keith Urban, yeah, I dig it!

And I'll have to upload you some GOOD Tori covers, next time I do a music spam. *Makes a mental note*

"Wild Horses" is my second all time favorite Stones song (The first being "Honky Tonk Woman", heh) so yes, hit me with the cover! ;)

Here you go: Wild Horses, Seattle style!

And that Paige/Plant cover is very cool! I'll bet Robert Smith was very flattered when (if) he heard it. Thanks! *mwaaaah*
