JBC Cover Convergence

"Full respek" [sic], to quote the over-quoted Ali G, to Northwest Airlines.
How excellent are they? Let me share this: I was plugging into Northwest Airlines inflight audio and was happily surprised to encounter the VU's
"Sweet Jane" and Jonathan Richmond's "Roadrunner" on the May 2003 play list.
That's a big trade up from the usual airplane fare of Shakira et al. So that's good. The extra thrill then came when I switched channels and discovered the JBC's cover of "Everybody's Talking" on the next play list. Pretty cool convergence of JBC covers with the men themselves. I would have recommended some original JBC material if the NW radio guy had consulted me (I think maybe "Swell", "Niagra", or "Girlfriend"), but hey, even a cover by the JBC beats the crap out of having to endure the torture of Fleetwood Mac, so I didn't file a formal complaint. Other surprisingly hip NW music featured Gang of Four ("Damaged Goods"), a bit of Ben Harper and some Jack Johnson. Received on Sat, 10 May 2003 15:59:36 -0400
