Franz Ferdinand Did Gwen Stefani, And The Magic Numbers Did Franz Ferdinand

Franz Ferdinand - What You Waiting For (Gwen Stefani Cover): So they turn this bombastic song into their signature dance punk sounds. I can say that it's a fun, tongue-in-cheek cover, and it's weird to hear words like these sung by Alex Kapranos: 'Harajuku girls...damn you've got wicked style...'. But overall, it's not all that jaw-dropping.

The Magic Numbers - Take Me Out (Franz Ferdinand Cover): In contrast to what Ferdinand did with Gwen's debut single, The Magic Numbers decided to unpunk, unplug Franz's debut single, turn it into a relaxing, airy, artsy acoustic song. Like what they did with Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love', only slightly better, in my opinion.

Sidenote: Tomorrow's the most important day in the whole year. May you wonder what will be happening tomorrow? Care to take a guess?
