I am always on the lookout, or rather ear out, for new and interesting music. When I find a new artist I take to the interwebs to find out more about them. It is one of those things that makes me a nerd. When I heard the Stella Starlight Trio I immediately connected with them and the song they were singing. It was a cover of Simple Minds’ ‘Don’t You’. Love the original and really love SST’s jazzy cover of it.
So when I got home I went online to see what I could see. What I found were five fantastic covers of five fantastic songs by this quirky jazzy trio… that I couldn’t find a thing about. I don’t know where they are from. I can’t find any more songs than the five I have below. And I can’t find out who these folks are! If anyone can fill me in, I would love that! But for now, please take a listen to the five covers by Stella Starlight Trio and enjoy!
Don’t You (Forget About Me)
The aforementioned cover of the Simple Minds 80’s classic. I still find myself raising a fist in the middle of this song…
Black Hole Sun
This is a cover of the recently reunited Soundgarden. This album/tape/CD was everywhere in the 90’s.
This happens to be a cover of the original 1965 Gloria Jones version of the song not the 1981 Soft Cell version most are familiar with. Either way, this is an excellent rendition.
This is of course a retooling of the 1973 Pink Floyd song from the number 1 album ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’.
Don’t You Want Me
And your fifth and final cover of the day comes from 1981 via The Human League. You all know it. You all love it. You all will enjoy this.
