Hi AskMe. I'm losing my mind. I heard a cover of the Boney M disco song Rasputin on Pandora a few years ago. It came up in rotation a few times, but I can't find a version that matches the one I recall, either on my channel thumbs-up songs or on a Pandora song title search. I can't find it Googling 'Rasputin cover.' It's not the Turisas version, but it's similar. [more inside]
I want to make an elementary school music bulletin board full of (color) images of blue albums. They should be either be predominantly blue, or should have "blue" in the name. They also need to be appropriate for an elementary school (so Nirvana is out). [more inside]

Musical question: back in the 80s I heard a cover of Al Green's Rhymes. It was a snarkier, Gen Xy, punkish version. Very distinctive vocals, kind of raspy and whiny. I don't remember the music behind it much which makes me think it was minimalistic. I want to say the singer's name was Chris something? Who did this version? I have faith some mefite well versed in obscure music will come to my aid. Thanks!

What album cover featured notable musicians as the twelve apostles of funk, with Lionel Richie as Judas? This was described to me in the early nineties. I think it was the cover of a hip hop album. Perhaps it wasn't an album cover, but some other artwork. Google returns a couple of hits for Richie as "Judas of funk," but other searches led nowhere.

What Mexican song did I hear that heavily sampled (or covered) an English language rock band like April Wine or Foghat (or similar). The Spanish lyrics sort of rapping over a bed of the classic rock sound. And I'm almost positive it wasn't Molotov. [more inside]

This is going to be a bit of a longshot, but when I was in Japan a few months ago, I heard a cover of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" sung presumably by a Japanese female, and I've been trying to find it ever since. [more inside]
I heard a piece of Muzak while shopping in Staples; the verse was forgettable, but the chorus was the verse from Kraftwerk's Computer Love (0:31 to 0:47 is the first full statement of it). It wasn't just similar; I know about soundalikes; it was note-for-note identical in melody and rhythm. I heard two more verse/choruses. It didn't seem to be a cover; the lyrics were not about computers; and of course, the actual "verse" was completely different. Searching and asking got no results, anyone know it? [more inside]
