almost the same thing happened to me except it was with nirvana's smells like teen spirit. It was on 95.1 (oldies) and it sounded like frank sinatra or someone singing it over a piano. Same exact lyrics and parts.

So I was in my friends car listening to an oldies radio station, when a song comes on...I don't recognize it but I swear I've heard it before...Then it starts; "Might as well Jump..." Then it went into the verse and the song was the same, melody, words, everything..."Can't you see me standing there I got my back against the record machine - I'm not the worst that you've seen, can't you see what I mean?"


I was so surprised...I had no idea...anyone else not know this?

 

:rolleyes:

Tori Amos did a cover on piano. She sounds manly enough.

No, sister or some VH family member who's female that does the clarinet, says so in the liner notes. Hilarious song and this thread, too. Dick Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine do a bunch of funky, lounge-ish covers, pretty funny stuff.

My bad, I always assumed "Jan" was female as it's usually a female name except in this case and people like Jan Hammer:) Regardless, cool tune though I wonder if they were blitzed when recording that?
