These are my new favorite covers.
Pixies songs by various artists. Various fake artists. Reminds me of Liam Lynch's "Fake Songs" album (which, conveniently, had a Fake Pixies Song.)
So go for Wave of Mutilation "covered" by the Bee Gees, but stay for the Beach Boys' Levitate Me, by way of Good Vibrations. The Sinatra cover is marred by way-too-synthy brass, but the Bob Marley version of Mr. Grieves is just classic.
And the Prince cover is so Prince, it hurts. But it hurts good.
Good on you, Matthew, whoever you are.
That is a trip.
I love how he nails Tina Turner's inflections even in his male voice, while cleverly pushing the backup vocals to the forefront.
'Sgood, huh? I can't think of a good way to tag them though. I guess artist = 'Matthew' is okay, and then title = 'songname as performed by artist'. But I don't LIKE it.

I think you may have single-handedly slashdotted this person. :)
Hopefully, I'll remember to try again later.
