On Wednesday we gave you disc one of The Wall. Today we present disc two aka. the disc with most of the famous songs on it. Download each MP3 individually below or all together at the bottom.
Dean Wareham – Hey You
Dean Wareham performed this cover for the Squid and the Whale soundtrack. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know the song figures heavily into the plot.
Adrian Belew – Is There Anybody Out There?
The King Crimson frontman keeps it spooky, with faded television broadcasts off in the distance.
Colin Meloy – Nobody Home
The Decemberists‘ leader apparently plays this one off-the-cuff. Impressive.
North Sea Radio Orchestra – Vera / Bring the Boys Back Home
Bonus points for an organ-tuba-folk twofer! From that great MOJO tribute album.
Gregorian – Comfortably Numb
A choir of [fake] Gregorian monks covering prog and metal songs? Yes, please!
Luther Wright and the Wrongs – The Show Must Go On
Sure, we posted one of theirs yesterday, but a tribute this good deserves a couple showings.
The Dresden Dolls – In The Flesh
Andrej Kurti & Victor Uzur – Run Like Hell
This Russian violin-cello duo grunt, grind, and groove on their instrumental cover album The Entertainers.
Twinkranes – Waiting for the Worms
Despite a horrid band name, this Dublin trio creates quirky prog-pop, with drums that thump even harder than the original.
Out of Phase – Stop
Another from that electronic tribute album.
Andreas Behrendt – The Trial
Waters’ gift for melody comes through strong on this piano instrumental.
The Buddha Lounge Ensemble – Outside the Wall
We end weird. Waters wouldn’t have it any other way.
