"I Feel There's Something In The Wind"

the Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack is getting a bit of an update. Okay, maybe not exactly that. But all of the songs are being covered (save for the opening and closing theme, which are going to be re-recorded by Elfman himself). Personally, I'm only really excited for a couple of the songs. I'm particularly not excited for the Amy Lee cover of Sally's Song. I hate Amy Lee, always have. Evanescence is one of my LEAST favorite bands (I freaking hate it/them), and Sally's Song is by far my favorite from the soundtrack. You can imagine my frustration.

Those who fancy themselves a goth, feel free to get excited. I'll hold my judgment, however, until I hear it. Check it out:

Sounds like there are quite a few very interesting ones coming up. I'm particularly excited about DeVotchka, Polyphonic Spree, The Yoshida Brothers, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and (obviously) RJD2.

yeah, those are basically the only ones I'm interested in. Well, I'm also looking forward to Sparklehorse, Datarock, and The Album Leaf, so I guess it won't be half bad ...

Who needs an Amy Lee cover if Fiona Apple has already done a version of the song?
