#TrashCatTuesday – Episode 16
When you cover Amy Winehouse, the #1 rule is to not try and sing like her. You’re going to fail. Just sing like yourself singing an Amy Winehouse song.
This weeks songs don’t have a lot in common. It’s one of the first themes we came up with when we had the idea to do these themed episodes, but we tend to keep a few at the ready in case we don’t have any new ideas. This was one of them. The first 4 were the theme really. Songs that are also women’s names.
The 5th song was a late addition so that we could mention Frank Turner’s album, No Man’s Land, which celebrates women as well. Each song on that record is the story of a different woman or women. Our selection is the story of The Winchester Geese which you can Google if you’re interested, but we’ll give a rundown of who they are in the video as well.
- Valerie – Amy Winehouse
- Ruby – Dave Rawlins Machine
- Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots – Flaming Lips
- Jessica Marie – The Trash Cats
- The Graveyard of the Outcast Dead – Frank Turner
