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.
Beach Boys songs are pretty sacred, it's true, but around this time of year it's hard to argue with a good cover. Knox Hamilton took on "The Man With All The Toys" and the result is a fluffy, jingle jangle jaunt that's heavy on pop, features a mighty fine falsetto, and is just plain perfect for all of your holiday playlists.
