Birthday Boy

The theme for this week's mp3 selections is simple: my birthday on the 15th. Saturday begins yet another year filled with wine, women and song (well, good song, at least; one great woman; and a beer or two).

Bjork has always been fascinating, I remember hearing the Sugarcubes' Life's Too Good for the first time and falling in love with her vocal instrument. For your listening enjoyment, I've unearthed a copy of the band's Icelandic, vinyl-only version of "Birthday."

Since the early '90's Mary Lou Lord has been wowing audiences and listeners with her heartfelt folk rock sensibility and an innate sense of perfect cover songs. At home on stage with just her acoustic guitar for accompaniment, her shows are intimate and wonderful. This week I'm sharing her cover of Ween's "Birthday Boy," from Mammoth's Jabberjaw Compilation, Vol. 2: Pure Sweet Hell.

While the sugarcubes is a good song, I don't think it deserves both spots in the weekly MP3's. Check your links brah.
