At a used music store maybe 7 years ago, I found a little cd for three dollars, a split between Juno and The Dismemberment Plan with a quaint little illustration of a plum on the cover. I didn't know who either of the bands were at the time (hardly do now, though I know they were no slouches), but the little EP intrigued me - and the price was right - so I bought it. To be honest, I've since lost the thing and don't even remember what 3 of the 4 songs sounded like, but one was good enough that I ripped it even at that tender age and still have it. It's a cover of Jennifer Paige's "Crush," a terrifying house/pop number from 1998, and I'm putting it up here so you can compare.
The Dismemberment Plan's take on "Crush" completely flips the style, slowing the tempo to about half speed and making it a minimal, bitter song instead of the bubblegum tornado that was the original. It's really quite an accomplishment; I think you'll like it.
Here's "Crush," by The Dismemberment Plan. I had the original too but now I've lost it. If you're curious, I'm sure it's around.
