Is it Tuesday again already? Seems like the weeks are just flying by, doesn’t it? This week’s Cover Tuesday features a couple really bizarre covers of The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” one by trip-hop giants Massive Attack and the other by the king of soul Mr. Al Green (pictured above). I’m not sure why artists are compelled to cover “Light My Fire” in bizarre ways. Maybe out of reverence for the original? Maybe out of contempt for the original? With these, it’s a little hard to tell…

Oh, and if you haven’t been checking out Souled On recently, it’s really time you did. Scholar has been hitting it hard with some amazing collections of samples used in hip-hop. Check it out.
