This piece of fun was sent to me by Black Dog Nate of the Pirates for Sail:
“Cover Comissions” is a monthly feature on the cover music blog Cover Me (http://www.covermesongs.com/) in which readers get to vote for which song the featured artist will cover. This month, in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, Pirates For Sail has taken over for a fully piratical installment! We’ve provided a list of ten fine nautical tunes, so vote for your favorite and we’ll record the winner. Voting ends at midnight on Friday, September 24. http://www.covermesongs.com/2010/09/cover-commissions-pirates-for-sail.html
So there it is – vote now to choose from such songs as Rock Lobster or A Pirate Looks at 40. I would have included Bad Romance on the list, but oh well.
