I was going to say "hurt" as well, but the two are pretty much at a dead heat to me.


For there to be any possibility of a tie-breaker I'll have to listen to them over and over again.



And then I'll hang myself probably.

SMT/SLT Have You Seen Your Mother Baby Standing In the Shadow? (rolling Stones cover) It's new. Nobody really knows about it yet but they just started playing it on BBC radio2 so I guess it's gonna be big pretty soon.

Chris Cornell's cover of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean", off of Cornell's new album, Carry On. I saw that one on iTunes and went, "No fucking way," and bought it immediately.

I like Chris Cornell, but that song blows. Do not want.

I can't think of any at the moment. :unsure:

Maybe you should go lock yourself in a closet and have a good think for about a year.

I'm not so sure I would say it's better than the original, but I've been totally crushing on Giant Drag's version of Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game' ever since I first heard it on FX in a promo for the upcoming season of Nip/Tuck.
