Good Cover Version: Postmodern Jukebox Does David Bowie

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

Hard to believe it's almost been a month since the passing of the legend that is David Bowie. Postmodern Jukebox has teamed up with modern chanteuse Nicole Atkins to do up a fantastic cover of one of my favorite Bowie songs, "Heroes." The joint venture has a vintage feel, with Atkins unleashing that towering voice of hers all over the place. The bonus is that all proceeds from the download of the song this week go to support cancer research. So download it, do good, and remember the greatness that we were fortunate enough to have in our lives.
