If only all education was this entertaining. This is actually pretty informative. I think they should make this a series.

I got my first pair of Dr. Martens when I was in 6th grade. It was a really big deal, because they were like $100 – and I bought them with my own money. They made my feet look enormous, because at the time I was nothing but elbows and feet, but I wore them with pride. When I first heard about the DM50 project I started thinking about the kind of music I associated with Dr. Martens, and of course my mind wandered back to the halls of my middle school. During that ‘phase’ I was really into Meatloaf. Luckily, you won’t find a cover of “I Would Do Anything For Love” on this album.
To celebrate their 50th anniversary Dr. Martens produced an album to represent the spirit of the people who’ve worn Dr. Martens over the years. They asked ten artists to record covers of classic songs, then ten directors produced videos to accompany the tracks. All of the songs can be downloaded FOR FREE over at 50.drmartens.com.
Participating Artists Include:
- Verbal + Yoon
- MC5’s Michael Davis + D.O.A
- The Ravonettes
- Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
- The Cinematic Orchestra
- Buraka Som Sistema
- The Duke Spirit

The song that will never die is back again. Irish duo Jedward puts it’s spin on Vanilla Ice‘s Ice Ice Baby, and Queen‘s Under Pressure. The video even features an appearance by Mr. Ice himself. Anyone else feel like they are watching an F-ed up version of Glee?

The most useful song you will ever learn, The Elements – Sung by Tom Lehrer. I wish this would’ve been around when I was in chemistry. It would’ve made my life so much easier.

A.) I totally love Alexa Chung. She seems like she’d be a lot of fun to hang out with.
B.) This whole thing was shot around and near my ‘hood. As you can see, there are a lot of sweet vintage shops around here.
Great advice on vintage, “smell it, and don’t not wash it.”

So beautiful! One of the best covers I’ve heard in a while. The best part is that you can totally download it for free over at Tale of the Tape. Yeaaayaah!
This performance is from a show back in September at Terminal 5 in New York.

As someone who is constantly hearing things wrong, I have a very deep appreciation for these. I should have listened to my mom when she told me to turn down the volume.
Listen closely, can you figure out what they are saying?
Here are some others that could be added to the list:
- Horse or Herse?
- Door or Drawer?
- Roof or Rough?
What others can you think of?
