Flobots – Happy Together

Rise

Song: Happy Together
Cover Artist: Flobots
Album (Year): Rise (single) (2008)
Original Artist: The Turtles


Originally released by The Turtles in 1967 after several other artists had passed on it. ‘Happy Together’ shot to the top of the charts and became The Turtles only #1 hit. It’s been used in numerous movies and TV shows and is instantly recognizable from the very start.

The cover version presented here was released only on the UK Maxi-Single for the Flobots song ‘Rise’. This version starts out fairly true to the original before smoothly transitioning into the Flobots signature hip-hop alternative style.

Megadeth – Grabbag (Duke Nukem Theme)

Duke Nukem: Music to Score By

Song: Grabbag (Duke Nukem Theme)
Cover Artist: Megadeth
Album (Year): Duke Nukem: Music To Score By (1999)
Original Artist: Lee Jackson


Today’s post comes in honor of the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever. It’s been 14 years in the making and has been one of the biggest vaporware jokes in the video game industry. Finally, on June 14th in the US, it will see the light of day. Yes, I already have it on preorder.

Originally written by Lee Jackson for Duke Nukem 3D, it’s covered here by Megadeth, who recorded it for the 1999 compilation CD ‘Duke Nukem: Music to Score By”. It was later released on their box set “Warchest”. Play it over and over again while waiting for the game. We’ve waited 14 years, 12 more days won’t kill us…hopefully.
