Calvin Harris covers SIT (LISTEN NOW ON MYSPACE)

Postby Jam Fan (Natalie) on Thu Aug 16, 2007 4:57 pm

I saw this in the newspaper (The Sun) today. Calvin Harris is covering JMQ.....

Amy Winehouse, Robbie Williams and Kylie are among the artists who've recorded special cover versions to celebrate Radio 1's 40th birthday in September. Each act's done a song from one of the past 40 years. Robbie's done Lola by the Kinks.

The idea is each band had to pick a hit from the past 40 years.

Full tracklisting:
1967 – Flowers In The Rain (The Move) covered by The Kaiser Chiefs
1968 – All Along The Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix Experience) covered by The Fratellis

1977 – Sound & Vision (David Bowie) covered by Franz Ferdinand
1978 – Teenage Kicks (The Undertones) covered by The Raconteurs
1979 – Can’t Stand Losing You (The Police) covered by Mika
1980 – Too Much Too Young (The Specials) covered by Kasabian

yeah i remember it was made for the final summer remix vinyl but dropped in favor of faulk and braxe which in fairness was a great mix

it was only ever available to listen to on the calvin harris remix section on myspace and back then i didnt realize you could get around the download thing not being shown

I am happy that he picked a Jamiroquai song.
But still, it's really not my cup of tea.... :lol:

you have to remember im also a bit of a Daft Punk fan and the use of what sounds like the voice box in this makes me like it

and hopefully this will lead to him re posting the CH mix on his site

What a coincidence! I was just listening to his cd today out of curiosity. I was searching around for some new music to listen to and I am across his name. I had never heard of him before. Not sure what I think about his cover of SIT. :?
