Cool Music Stuff on the Internet - U2, Jack White, Band of Horses, Adam Duritz, Laura Marling

In honor of Achtung Baby's 20th anniversary (man do I feel old) and forthcoming reissue (October 31),  Q Magazine will be releasing a compilation of U2 covers in its October 25th issue.  According to Consequence of Sound and Twenty Four Bit, we can look forward to covers from the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Patti Smith, Depeche Mode, The Fray and more- all doing covers from U2's epic album.  Personally, I can't wait to hear Damien Rice do One and The Killers do Ultraviolet.

Achtung Baby - U2

Band of Horses Guitarist Covers Cyndi Lauper
We all know how much I love a good cover. Like, really a lot.  Especially the unexpected ones.  Which is why I like this cover by Band of Horses' guitarist doing Cyndi Lauper's "All Through the Night" (via Cover Me Songs)

The Essential Cyndi Lauper - Cyndi Lauper

Adam Duritz of Counting Crows Covers The Cars
Adam Duritz had done a week's worth of love song covers in February of this year, one of them being "You Might Think" by The Cars, of which Adam just released a video for.  How Adam manages to turn "You Might Think" into a wistful serenade is beyond me, but if there's anyone to do it, its Adam. Check it out HERE (via Cover Me Songs)

Laura Marling Live Set
Its been no secret how amazing I think Laura Marling is.  She recently performed live in D.C. and the lovely folks at NPR Music are bringing you the entire set live, HERE
