Fountains of Wayne - "Calling All Girls"

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Tuesday, 6 April 2004 14:28 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I'd be very happy if either Busted or McFly decided that the thing to do would be to cover both sides of the "The Sun Shines Here" / "I'll Be Your Surprise" 7" by Hurrah!

#1 guaranteed. I guarantee it. And I can, you know.

TLC did beat him to it, although I guess that it has been a good 10 years now. hmmm... I'd like to hear it. Or he could maybe do "I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man".

I think the only thing that could endear JC Chasez to me is if he covered "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa"

Oh this is fucking ridiculous. It's a rule that EVERY hip MTV-ready indie breakout must do "outdoor miner" by Wire. D-U-FUCKING-H!

"Peekaboo" for Gwen.

And somebody's gotta do the Violent Femmes' "Add It Up."

As I don't still don't know how they didn't dominate the charts worldwide (even despite Patrick Fitzgerald being openly homosexual), someone could easily hit #1 with one of their songs...from "Come on Now" (some modern-rock band like Puddle of Mudd could cover it, not that I'd want to hear the abomination) to "The 1001st Fault" (which would be so great for an emo group).

Well, maybe not #1, but could definitely go Top 40.

Some R&B queen should do a cover of ESG's "Moody", too.

Franz Ferdinand's cover of ABC's "Poison Arrow" was #1 for 16 weeks in the fall/winter of 2005.

Now that's genius.

"No One's Little Girl" is ripe for a smooth R&B retranslation - I can fully get on board with that.

Chris Ott (Chris Ott), Friday, 25 March 2005 19:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Oh. My. God. I was just about to say Fountains Of Wayne "Calling All Girls" but someone beat me to it, last year. It really is kind of obvious, and I have no idea what's stopping them.

Must say that "Hounds of Love" wouldn't be my first choice.
