New music to add to the iPod

In an earlier post, Great new music - Jen Chapin Linger, I mentioned that I had picked up a copy of 'Enjoy Every Sandwich:' The Songs of Warren Zevon while looking though the new music as Borders. I passed on buying a copy that day because Adam Sandler sings Werewolves of London. While Werewolves of London is one my favorite Zevon songs, Adam Sandler is one of my least favorite performers.

A commenter on the post let me know that Sandler's performance of the song is true to the original and not something that would make me retch. Well based largely on that comment I bought a copy of the tribute album in with a couple of other Cd's. The commenter is right, Sandler just sings the song. Actually if the cover hadn't told me who was performing I would not have guessed who it was. Which in this case is a very good thing.

I particularly like Jorge Calderon and Jennifer Warnes' version of Keep Me in Your Heart. The original on The Wind is beautiful and haunting because Zevon's terminal illness was so well known. There is no doubt in my mind that the song is a eulogy. The Calderon version shares the a similar tone to the original but benefits from Warnes' vocals that somewhat turn the song from a eulogy to a romantic love song.

Other new cd's to MP3:
