there was an album of disney covers around 1990. thi was one of my favorites, as was the neville brothers' cover of the mickey mouse club "now it's time" song. a female singer did a good version of "baby of mine" but i can't remember who it was.
Yeah, I know, I actually own the CD and it came out when I was working on air. I played a lot of it then, but it was tough because the cuts run together. The Buster Poindexter cut is great too of Castles in Spain.
It's called Stay Awake and the cut you want is this one by Bonnie Raitt with Was (Not Was)
But Cruella DeVille was and still is my favorite off that album.
yeah, i had the album ...lost it in katrina. it was a nifty album, i think in part because mot people have a touchpoint to at least one or two songs in the disney pantheon. i wonder if they'll do another one with songs from the last 25 years.
another one that i got when i had my kid was the 3 disc collection "songs from the street", sesame street songs from their 35 years (at the time the album was made). the rem "furry happy monsters holding hands", ladysmith black mambazo "african alphabet" and bobby mcferrin "tweet in the morning" are faves. los lobos too.
A page with 5 interesting variations of Blue Ã–yster Cult's Don't Fear The Reaper. The Beautiful South do the best cover on the page, and The Peptides almost nail it, but fail it by not bringing on the full Flamenco effect.
