Sounds Eclectic Sounds Mostly Like Crap

Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" as done by the cast of A Mighty Wind? The Flaming Lips doing Radiohead's "Knives Out"? Ear Bud both loves and loathes Starbucks' brand-new cover project: Sounds Eclectic, The Covers Project. Hits include Sia on "I Go to Sleep" and Girls in Hawaii doing a Flaming Lips-ish "Out on the Weekend." But The Hilarious-Good Award goes to the Magic Numbers' folk version of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" (accordion solo!), while the Hilarious-Bad Award goes to Robert Plant recovering "Black Dog." So sad.
