Feel Good Friday on Monday Night For You

I borrowed a CD from the library tonight entitled Cover The World: World Music Versions of Classic Pop Hits.

Track listing:

1. Albert Pla - "Walk On The Wild Side"
2. Mo' Horizons - "Hit The Road Jack"
3. Toure Kunda - "In The Air Tonight"
4. Tukuleur - "Africa"
5. Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Phoebe Snow - "People Get Ready"
6. Chris Ardoin and Double Clutchin' - "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher"
7. Les Go - "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)
8. Angelique Kidjo - "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
9. Fatal Mambo - "In The Summertime"
10. Yannick - "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)"
11. Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Des'ree - "Ain't No Sunshine"
12. Nenes - "No Woman, No Cry"

It's a very fun CD and my four-year-old daughter immediately broke out into a crazy dance when "Hit The Road Jack" came on. I recommend that you borrow it from the library as well. Put in your request and I'll have it back at my branch in a week or so for you. Better yet, buy it from the good people at Putumayo. They do a great job of getting great music to our ears.

These are all African artists..?

Does Ladysmith Black Mambazo do a version of "Laughing Man" or "Death and Texas"..?
