Time For Some More Tongue Lashings
January 19, 2017 3:09pm CST
You remember that commercial were their slogan was more or less We do not make it, but we make it better. It was something like that and corporations are so on my bad side right now I do not want to even give them the time of day for something like that. Oh yes, we be hating.! Anyway, I bring that up because I heard another cover band do a killer Elton John song. At least I think so. I figure you cannot really touch Elton John or his song "Rocket Man." One of the best songs ever made as far as I am concerned. The band that does the cover is "Me First And The Gimmie Gimmies." They take popular mainstream songs and turn them into punk rock versions. They seem to have a consistent fan base as all their videos range from hundred of thousands views to a million. They do not make the songs and they do not make them better, but they make them cooler. There I said it, Let the the tongue lashings begin because no one is cooler than Elton John some might say.

Agreed and if they cannot do it justice, then they probably should not do it. That is always risky though with perception and everything, but think these guys have a knack for ths. They also say they try to make bad pop songs that became popular for a short period of time and make them better. lol
