Under The Cover

There somethin' about Wayne that really has a hold on me.  I think it's his eccentricity that does it for me.  That plus good music and the fact he still lives in The City.  He and his nephew's band, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, have covered Madonna's "Borderline" for Warner Bros. 50th anniversary covers compilation Covered, A Revolution in Sound.  

I know what you're thinking, it's going to be some weird Flaming Lips version of her song.  Well, that's not far off.  However, the Lips (and Stardeath...) put their own stamp on it an turned it into their song.  I think even Mr. Blue would love it, as long as they don't cover "Papa Don't Preach."
