Covering Your Wednesday: The Moondoggies

Note: The Zach Galifianakis look-alike on the far right is not a publicity stunt. He's a member of the band who just happens to look exactly like Zach Galifianakis. How fun.

I have never been a fan of Bob Dylan. Not to say he isn't one of the best song writers of all time, but I never cared for his voice. I know that for a self-proclaimed music fanatic, this is probably breaking some ungodly rule. You don't like Bob Dylan and you say you like music? Simply outrageous. I do, however, like The Moondoggies, and not just because they have a really cool band name, but because they produce good music - makes sense. The Moondoggies decided to cover Dylan's classic, "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere," back in January for one of Sirius XM's Loft Sessions. They stay pretty true to the original. The band definitely emphasizes the vocals and harmonica, however, which ultimately pay homage to one of music's most well known names, who I just happen to dislike. Maybe I'll rethink my musical preferences today. Enjoy
