Digging for Covers: Three from Clem Snide

Lately, I've been really digging Clem Snide's cover of the 1980's track "Heat of the Moment" by Asia. Snag it over at You Ain't No Picasso. The song become's completely Eef Barzelay's, reducing all that leftover pop cheesiness to dust. There's also a cover of Eddie Money's "Two Tickets To Paradise" over at Aquarium Drunkard, but that song's structure and lyrics don't quite suit or work as well for 'ole Eef. Clem Snide also has a nice version of the doo-wop song "Tears On My Pillow," but to this day my favorite cover of theirs is their devastatingly slow and subtle version of Ritchie Valens's "Donna."
