“Kiss me beneath the milky twilight, Lead me out on the moonlit floor, Lift your open hand, Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance, Silver moon’s sparkling So kiss me.”
Yep, the song “Kiss Me,” once sung by the band Sixpence None The Richer, is now being covered, along with many other artists by alternative rock band, New Found Glory.
The September 18, 2007 release of New Found Glory’s album, From Your Screen To Your Stereo Part II, is a cover album of eleven songs that have undergone a makeover. Bob Dylan’s song, “It Ain’t Me Babe,” is covered on this album along with The Breakfast Club anthem, “Don’t You (Forget About Me).”
Honestly, I was very pleased with this album. I can say I would usually be the first person to stand up and preach against bands copying previous artists songs, but I felt that New Found Glory not only added a neat twist to their cover songs, but also gave adequate credit to the original artists. I’ve never been a huge NFG fan in the past, but this new album made a good impression on me.
I say “good” because NFG struck a soar spot with me when they covered The Goo Goo Dolls single, “Iris.” Not only is that song amazing as is, but The Goo Goo Dolls are still around creating brilliant music.
I think it is too soon for any band to be trying to cover The Goo Goo Dolls. Aside from that, this CD is a lot of fun to sing along with. Every time I put this CD in my car when I’m driving
