  • The Art of the Remake IV

    Remember the standard, written by yours truly: “If you are going to cover a song, rip it apart a bit and make it your own.”

      A rather somber version. (You would like her better if she had some tattoos.)

    2. Michael Kennedy Says:

      I saw a band in Chicago, many years ago, that I was sure was “Chicago,” although it was named “My Brother’s Keeper” at the time. It sure sounded like them. Wikipedia doesn’t say so.

      Lex – I like her enough without the tats. I had no clue who she was so I did a little research and found a bunch of photos of her. Pretty good looking woman.

    4. Robert Schwartz Says:

      I liked that. Besides, she is very easy on the eyes.

    5. Yackums Says:

      Easy on the eyes, perhaps…but murder on the ears.

    6. Carl from Chicago Says:

      She definitely took a different tack with the song. I like her singing the horn parts.

      To me the original song is an urgent call to something… to her it is more like a laid back stroll.
