Lyle Divinsky is putting a fresh spin on some classics for a series dubbed “Fan Friday” over on his YouTube and Facebook page. The concept is simple. Every Tuesday morning voting opens, and if you have a suggestion for the next song he should cover, you put it in the comments. Whichever song gets the most likes after 24 hours will be recorded and uploaded on Friday.
Below is a sampling of some of my personal favorites. Head over to his YouTube channel to check out more tasty treats for your ears.
“(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding
“We've Got Tonight” by Bob Seger
“Retrograde” by James Blake
What does Lyle have in store for us next? I'd love to see him tackle a Tom Waits track or maybe some Brian Wilson.
