Limb by limb and tooth by tooth Tearing up inside of me Every day every hour I wish that I was bullet proof Wax me Mould me Heat the pins and stab them in You have turned me into this Just wish that it was bullet proof…..
This is a repost from about 2 years ago. I posted below what I wrote about some of better covers of this song. I was reminded of it when KOL covered it last saturday at the show in Boston, and I started singing it today when I looked down and realized I had two different shoes on while out doing errands. This song never gets old.
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground and your head on the ground Try this trick and spin it, yeah. Your head will collapse But there’s nothing in it And you’ll ask yourself Where is my mind?”
I think that I could listen to this song a hundred times a day and never get sick of it. I recently realized just how many covers of this song there are. So I decided to listen to as many as I could today. Here are my favorites so far, but I may need to adjust as I find more that I like.
Kings of Leon - Live at Bonnaroo 2010 and Boston 2014. Most like the original.
Yoav (featuring Emily Browning) - This song I have listened to for about a week on repeat. Emily’s voice is haunting. It grabs your soul.
Nada Surf - I haven’t heard a Nada Surf cover that I don’t like.
The Vaccines & Noah and The Whale - These two bands combined makes for an interesting take.
Trampled by Turtles - They are starting to grow on me a little. This version is def different.
