While browsing YouTube tonight I found this set of charming covers of songs by Michael Penn, Erasure, A-Ha, and others. The videos aren’t much to speak of, and the performances are unpolished, but the singer, ExUSAF, has a good voice and does a fine job with songs like Penn’s “Try” and “Long Way Down”. And he hits the high note in “Take On Me” much better than I do. 🙂 If you are the type of 80’s music cover geek that I am, the little piano break in “Take On Me” will totally win you over.
Oh, what the heck. Here are a few of the songs I liked best, after the cut — enjoy!
