I bet Kurt is either tuning over in his grave or dancing in heaven with delight. You never could tell with Kurt.

I never really had a desire to assassinate anyone before this.

I am not sure which is worse Paul, Tori Amos or Patti Smith.

I don't think either compares with The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britains' cover ....

I don't think that Tori Amos' version is bad at all.

she rules all chicks with last names that are first names of really old white men.

Actually, she rules much more than that. \:\)

Hee Hee. Now you know how we old folks feel when one of the beautiful songs we love is performed (I use the word loosely) by some pimply faced kid who puts a throbbing drum track to it, reduces the chord structure to 3 chords, butchers the melody cuz he/she thinks it's cool, and screams the lyrics.

Neener Neener!

Very interesting!

You know, I almost hate to kill the comedy by hauling out my "inclusiveness and diversity are FUN" schtick, but I honestly thought that both the Tori Amos and Paul Anka versions were entertaining and respectable.

Part of what I've always enjoyed and appreciated about jazz is the eagerness of artists to bravely reinterpret and rearrange known melodies. Now, whether you agree that a swing version of
"Smells like Teen Spirit" is "a good idea", if you were to envision a swing version, Anka's is pretty nicely arranged. I mean, how can you guys hate big bands?!?! Isn't that un-American?

As to Tori Amos, I enjoyed the performance and interpretation as well, but I do wish somebody would get her an inhaler or something.
