I wanna, li-li-li-lick you…

So bad that it’s good? Perhaps.

Luda

If Chris ‘Luda’ Bridges is talented enough to cross over into other art mediums such as movies, then obviously Travis Morrison can cover a song not necessarily in his usual genre, right? The people either fortunately or maybe unfortunately enough to have heard this cover obviously didn’t think so. I mean, the bible (Pitchfork’s thoughts) wanted to take back everything they ever mentioned about Morrison’s former band, The Dismemberment Plan, who years ago sat on the highest of pedestals as a very forward thinking indie rock group. Everything that people hated though, I began to truly love and appreciate, especially the “broken toy guitar”, or as some people dubbed it, the rubber band. Travis’ vocal delivery though is really, what caught my attention from the beginning. His cadence is actually faster than Luda in the original, which brings almost a new direction to the track; but in the end, that’s why covers exist. To be more true to the original, Morrison should have thrown in a backing female vocalist, like maybe Sue Cie. (Sexy)

Travis Morrison-What’s Your Fantasy

And if you’re searching for more mediocre rap songs covered by guitars, then here you go…that three exclamation band also did a great cover of Nate Dogg’s ‘Get Up’. In true dance fashion, they extended it to close to 10 minutes. Recommended.
