Great covers: Weezer - Paranoid Android

I have been meaning to write about this one for at least a few months. Covers are strange things. They can give a whole new fantastic dimension to music or really just kill it. Me, I think that if a song is truly good, it will be fantastic almost whatever you do to it, as long as there are talented musicians doing the cover. When I saw that Weezer was doing Paranoid Android by Radiohead though, I was a bit scared for them and at the same time filled with anticipation. Weezer is a good band musically and I have heard a lot of good covers, but paranoid android is... well... grand, to say the least. The different parts, the singing, the solos... my oh my. You have to have guts and skills to take on something like that. I am however thrilled to tell them that they ACE it. It's brilliant and fantastic and give yet a new dimension to the song, even though it is also pretty true to the original. That is even more impressive than taking it to a new style.. Maybe.. I have to think about that some more. In the meanwhile, enjoy!
