Friday Afternoon Music

On a few recent Fridays, I've posted some tunage. I figured, why not make this a regular thing? Why not share some stuff you otherwise might not get a chance to hear? Today? Well, why not go with the fun, punk stylings of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes covering Aretha Franklin (not literally) ? Exactly. Why not!

I've always been rather amused by their cover of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina". But this is lovely too :)

Yeah, these are definitely the same guys I thought they were. Did you ever hear the punk cover of Hit Me Baby One More Time? My old band and I used to do it all the time. Then one day I heard it on a friend's CD and I was so pissed, even though they probably did it first ;)
