COVER THAT

TODD BROWN


 THERE'S A LOT OF COVERING GOING THESE DAYS ON The TMWC.
Mainly on Antonio.

Antonio used to be pretty social, kind of a warm up before things got serious.  But, the young kids like hitting it hard right from the start.  Sometimes I try and jump across and get in their breakaway.  I'm less and less successful at this.  The rest of the time, I'm waiting for another young stallion to make the effort and drag the rest of across the gap before it's too late.

Which brings me to a different kind of cover: covering a song.

As I was recovering from this morning's social ride, Stevie Wonder's Essentials playlist was rocking in the background.  I like these essentials playlists from Apple Music because not only do the have the favorites but often they'll have a gem.  The gem today was Pastime Paradise.

So, I'm listening to it and thinking... damn that sounds familiar. 
What song is that? 
And it hits me.
It's Coolio's
Gangsta's Paradise

And in the words of Hanna Montana, That's pretty cool!

On the Wiki they say Coolio sampled Stevie's song from 20 years prior, but I'm going to say he covered it.  Though the lyrics are changed, the meaning is the same.

There you go gangstas...
to cover the moves, don't waste ya time
to cover the songs, ya gotsta rhyme.

 Which do you prefer?
