Cover Me

By now you know that I am a huge fan of covers. Mo help me but I really love them. There is something about them that touches my heart. I think that it is the fact that they offer a new spin on an old song. I don't know...but that is not the point. Tonight's point is that when it comes to covers...one band has it all over another other cover band.

There is only one cover band to span multiple decades...covering hit after hit after. There is only one cover band that your child will listen to now while your mother sings along. You know who I am talking about...




C-H-I-P-M-U-N-K-S!!!!!! Holla!

So in honor of the most successful cover band of all time...here are my five favorite songs covered by those lovable furry little rodents. Take a few minutes to embrace your inner child and sing along with Alvin and The Chipmunks.

#5




Daydream Believer - So I fully admit that this song makes my list because I am quite the sentimental sap. You see, this song has been a favorite of mine since I was a girl and The Chipmunks have always been a favorite of mine. Put the two together and Millie is in music heaven. Yes I said it, this song is music heaven for me.

#4





Only You - Now the original version of this song was good but this cover is better. I absolutely love this song. The Chipmunks sing with such passion that I actually believe that Alvin really does love only me. You cannot listen to this song without smiling...and that is a Millie Guarantee.

#3





I Want To Hold Your Hand - See now this I own all of my music knowledge to this cover. You see, I probably never would have been exposed to The Beatles music if The Chipmunks hadn't covered this song. Call it a generational thing but this song is what made me start to listen to The Beatles. Music critics be damned.

#2





Rock And Roll - I think that this is my number two pick because I find it to be such an inappropriate song for The Chipmunks to sing. I mean...isn't the song about a "dry spell"? I don't know and don't really care. In spite of its inappropriateness I think it is awesome. I love it!

#1





Livin' On A Prayer - So the Bon Jovi fan in me cries at the thought of anyone but Jon singing this song but all is well when I hear Alvin belt out this classic tune. The Chipmunks manage to capture all of the passion that Bon Jovi put into the original which is why this is my favorite cover EVER by Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Luv ya, Millie

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
