Cover Thursdays: Restless Hearts Sleep Alone Tonight

A.V. Club has a running feature called "A.V. Undercover".  Each of the last two years the staff and fans have come up with a list of 25 songs they would like to see covered.  As a band or musician comes in, they pick a song and cross it off the list.  As time goes by, the list grows shorter and the choices narrow.  It's really a great concept, that results in some really interesting takes on popular songs from the past.

"A.V. Undercover" has produced a bunch of great videos, and you'll likely be seeing more featured on our "Cover Thursdays".  However, choosing the first was easy.  I can't pass up a Journey cover.

Here's Clem Snide covering Journey's power ballad, "Faithfully."

As if that wasn't awesome enough, Eef Barzelay, Clem Snide frontman, announced that he'll be making a 6-song EP of Journey covers!  Find more info on their website.
