I really like Radiohead and was going to put the video up for High and Dry. But what would that do besides get some toes tapping? You know me…always have to have a moral to my posts.
Then I started going down the sidebar looking at the covers. There were many great ones but they all did what most people do when you cover someone else. That is that they imitated Radiohead. All putting out emotionless versions of Thom Yorke. This tied in with a post on Don Charisma’s site that we have been talking about which deals with imitation and even flagrantly stealing someone’s work.

Then I hit on Jorge Drexler’s link and after hearing 3 seconds of it knew that this guy got it. He wasn’t trying to sing someone’s song. He was singing the song to how it relates to Jorge Drexler.
That is what gets you noticed and puts Mr. Drexler on my blog for the week!
