Acoustic Covers Week: Maybe I’m Amazed- Jem and Paranoid- Gus Black

Maybe I’m Amazed is one of the most romantic songs of all-time…actually I can’t think of one more romantic.  The Paul McCartney original can’t be topped, but the sweetness of Jem’s voice makes it a strong second.

If you want to make a really good cover song, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic metal song and strip it down, so you clearly hear the darkness of its tone and words. Gus Black does this with Black Sabbath’s Paranoid.  The video features one of my all-time favorite TV characters, the smart and self-destructive, Hank Moody.
