Ariel Pink covers Damage Done

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

I made it 28 seconds.

That’s s**t.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

"One of my favorite Ariel Pink songs." in the comments.

Oh wow. :lol:

Umm, I've no idea what to say. Wow. Just, wow.

OK, I guess it certainly captures the spirit of the original, can't argue with that anyway.

I feel a bit like Arthur Dent after being exposed to Vogon poetry, but... I rather liked it.

Wow. After a mildly promising start, that made me want to scratch out my ears from the inside.

This is an interesting question. Is there a decent song in there somewhere.?
This is just a copy rather than a cover for me.

Can this turd be polished?

Quoting JB, you're kind agree that this cover isn't all that bad, because original wasn't a true work of art.

But you can roll it in glitter.

Ariel Pink did neither.

I am already thinking of giving it a try. It will take some time though.
Anyone else?

When i did my cover of summer there was even less of a song available ...
