I'm currently feelin: tired tired

According to sources, Aerosmith will be covering Seconds this year:

"Also due out next year are cover versions of John Lennon & the Plastic Ono Band's "Give Peace A Chance" and U2's "Seconds," which they did with the West African band the Refugee All Stars for separate tribute albums."
(original article is from December, hence the 'next year')

It's not horribly surprising that Aerosmith would want to cover a U2 song (after all, all the cool kids are doing it), what's surprising is that the choice is Seconds. I loove Seconds, but it's just a wee bit obscure ;P

This will be interesting...

Even more so is the mention of a tribute album. Did I miss news on this? The last one I had was the one with the industrial bands covering U2 songs...that and the Philharmonic one as well.

obscure and Aerosmith usually go hand-in-hand. LOL

Hopefully it'll be a better decision than the horrid idea to let Mary J Blige cover "One"(sry, I just don't like her, and I thought the cover/duet was horrid)

Whew - thought I was the only one that couldn't stand that Marty J. Blige re-make.

Ditto, here. Just imagining it is making me cringe.

Seconds? Of all U2 songs that is probably the least Aerosmithy IMO...
*curious* i think it might be cool

Why am I hearing a mash-up of "Dream On" and "Seconds" in my head? 'Cause that's what came to mind when I read this post.

Now, that might be interesting...

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

In an apartment on Time Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, hell to pay
A revolution everyday


Anyone out there who could mash those songs together? ;)

I guess with an obscure song they're betting that a lot of the punters won't know it's a U2 song and therefore will assume it's an original and won't make any odious comparisons. It's a theory I can work with anyway.
