Since we’re spending so much time at the movies today, might as well … Ever wonder what would happen if your favorite movie songs were suddenly emo-ized? Pine no longer young Dashboard fan, New Found Glory has put together another collection of movie covers, From the Screen To Your Stereo Part 2. It’s the full-length follow-up to the first installment, an EP from way back in 2000 that included “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough,” “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” and The Never Ending Story theme (what?), among others … Incorrigible fuckers.
If this photo doesn’t make you want to punch them, these songs may do the trick…
Yessir, almost a dozen new saccharine cinematic slices, including “Stay,” complete with backing vocals by Lisa Loeb. Wait, is she that desperate? Well, still would tap that ass. Seriously though, who the fuck covers Sixpence None The Richer? Right, New Found Glory. Still, no one should cover “Don’t You (Forget About Me),” except Simple Minds (what, you thought they wrote it?). NFG also do “Crazy For You,” which was the previous #1 the week before that Simple Minds’ song. (Bless you, Wikipedia.) Actually, conjuring that era, “Crazy For You,” along with “Lovefool” also appear on the 25% awesome Radio 1 comp.
Anyway, let the music do the talking/whining: There are three MP3s, including “Stay,” over at Zeon’s Music Blog. You can also snag a few streams over at the band’s MySpace, including the album’s winner, a smile inducing mall-punk take on “King Of Wishful Thinking,” which we’ve already established is ripe for parody. Pass the Gummy Bears.
