david coverversion: the beach boys vs. sonic (ciccone) youth vs. madonna

pigeon kicker's own nicholas swears on a stack of bibles and used hustlers that early madonna is brilliant pop music. for it was he who reminded me that her 'lucky star' was excellently used (twice, kinda) in the movie 'snatch'. bullet tooth tony's theme song perhaps? also from her debut record is 'burnin' up', which sonic youth tried and succeeded and released on their 'whitey album' under the name ciccone youth. ciccone youth was the youth with special guest mike watt. deluxe reissues are the latest music industry craze which is why we saw the deluxe release of the first major label youth album 'goo'. upon this album, which houses the excellent and my second favorite sonic youth track 'dirty boots', also has a take of the beach boys' 'i know there's an answer' on the second disc.

madonna - burnin' up
ciccone youth - burnin' up
sonic youth - i know there's an answer
the beach boys - i know there's an answer

sonic youth - dirty boots
madonna - lucky star

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
