(I've tried patience)

(no subject)

Actually got some sleep last night. Although I dreamed that in order to be allowed to sleep I had to perform unspeakably depraved acts with various people. Morpheus...honestly.
Mind you, one of them was [latest object of fascination] so I'm certainly not complaining. Heh. And it's more fun than dreaming about fish.

Still tired though, and appear to be in the "completely lost my voice" stage of this cold, so I'm not sure what to do about the course tonight. I didn't go on Monday or Tuesday because I just felt so godawful and couldn't really speak or sing, but tonight is movement and in theory I should be able to do that ok. Bar possible coughing fits. Argh, I don't know.

Music-type Questions :

I've asked the first two of these questions before, but not for a while, so :

1) What's your favourite cover version? (And why?)
2) What's your least favourite cover version? (And why?)

Bonus question #1 : I have here four versions of the Velvet Underground's song 'All Tomorrow's Parties' - one by Apoptygma Berzerk, one by Japan, one by Bryan Ferry, and the original. Are there any more out there I should know about?
Bonus question #2 : Are there any other cover versions of, well, anything that you think I should hear?

Bonus question #3 : Why on earth are the Velvet Underground so revered anyway?

Argh.

Just reading through the posts in a Velvet Goldmine community, I came across this. I had to read it a couple of times to check I hadn't misunderstood. (Italics and bold tags are mine, by the way.)

"I have defiantly seen The Velvet Goldmine like 10234893 times. But I still have some questions. Like what is with the space ship? I assume it has something to do with Oscar Wilde but I don't really know who he is other then from the movie. And is he related to Curt??"

Argh. Note to self : Make a 'pocket brick wall' icon for posts like this.
