“Zombie” Jay Brannan (The Cranberries)bartstyes

Thu, 10 Feb 2011 17:49:11 +0000

From an artist that I will definitely be learning more bout, here’s a minimalist Cranberries cover. Learn more about Jay at or find him on Facebook. He’s put out an album of covers and also has a great body of original work, which you can find on iTunes.

“In the Pines” Louvin Brothers (Traditional)bartstyes

Sat, 05 Feb 2011 18:35:24 +0000

I’m a little slow to this, but rest in peace, Mister Charlie Louvin. Along with brother Ira, the Loudermilks from Alabama became the Louvin Brothers and shaped harmonies that influenced bluegrass, rockabilly and pop artists such as the Everly Brothers, the Byrds and the Beatles. The Louvin brothers are now home with Jesus but their […]

“Mad World” Gary Jules (Tears for Fears)bartstyes

Sat, 05 Feb 2011 17:39:03 +0000

I cannot believe I’m just getting around to posting this hauntingly beautiful cover of Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” by Gary Jules. Did you first catch onto this through Donnie Darko, a video game commercial or some other means? I’d love to hear!

“Telephone” The Morning Pages (Lady Gaga)bartstyes

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 22:29:33 +0000

Brooklyn roots-rockers The Morning Pages illustrate just how far a Macbook with iLife and a YouTube channel will get you in this world. Catchy country-rock groove that I would actually listen to on the way to work.

“Two Out of Three” Jamey Johnson (Meat Loaf)bartstyes

Fri, 22 Oct 2010 20:53:54 +0000

Jamey Johnson is hereby forgiven for co-writing “Honky Tonk Badonka Donk.” Of course, if push came to shove, he wouldn’t even have to do this awesome cover for me to forgive him. He’s old-school country and I dig it.

The Band has been on my internal playlist a lot this week. Here’s Travis doing a great cover of  “The Weight.”

“The Promise” Blue October (When in Rome)bartstyes

Sat, 18 Sep 2010 13:52:27 +0000

Wow. Has it really been late December 2009 since the last post? Color me embarrassed. I guess having our second son in early January put this blog on the back burner. Even so, it’s been averaging over 500 hits a month on a consistent basis – with no new content in almost 9 months. Here’s […]

“Hazy Shade of Winter” Salim (Simon & Garfunkel)bartstyes

Mon, 28 Dec 2009 17:59:49 +0000

Open Mic Monday! Here’s Salim of Kenya with a cover of Simon & Garfunkel or the Bangles, depending on your age. I love this because there are animals making noise around the microphone while the man sings and plays. Cool guitar too.
