I know the original Van Morrison version (magnifique) and the Everclear one, but this one (http://www.filelodge.com/files/hdd6/135716/MXPX-%20Brown%20Eyed%20Girl.mp3) has gotta be my fave, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out who it's by. The butt who uploaded it onto Limewire said MxPx, but I don't think so. Any recognize the voice/style/etc. of this band? Or, better still, this particular song?

I'm at work so I can't listen to it but it's probably Lagwagon. They're the closest thing to MXPX that I can think of that have covered it.

Hmm, could be. I've never heard anything by them, which would explain why I didn't recognize it. I'll try to find.

EDIT: Yes! Nice job, dudeski. Thanks :D

It's definitely Lagwagon. I have that song, too. I <3 them.

Niceness. Secretly, I was kinda hoping this would be something that took days to figure out. I'm glad, though, that I can finally take it off of the "Unknown Artist" section of my playlist.

The original "Brown Eyed Girl" is possibly the most overrated song of all time. It sounds like what might come out if you held a guy at gunpoint and asked him to sing a song.

The Everclear cover, by comparison, is actually really good.

when did EC cover it? their older material is quite good, I think.

Everclear are tits.

I'd love that band, if it wasn't for the fact every second or third song is about "waah waah, my daddy left me, waah, I grew up in a ghetto neighbourhood being the only white kid, waah" whiney shit.

Musically, they rock. "So Much For The Afterglow" is a rad album.

I never really liked this song very much, but if I had to listen to one version, it would be this one.

There's only one song about that...

Look at their hits:

Santa Monica
Everything to Everyone
I Will Buy You a New Life
Father of Mine
AM Radio
Wonderful
Volvo Driving Soccer Mom

Father of Mine and MAYBE Wonderful are whiney. However, Wonderful is a positive song underneath.

Yeah, all of Everclear's lyrics are about the same shit. Still an awesome band though.

I don't understand how you can complain about Everclear's lyrics being all the same and then compliment them on being a great band when their music is even moreso.

Anyway, the lyrics are the best part of the band. They may all be about the same sort of stuff and they're always incredibly simple but they're quite good. This may be the depressed 16 year old in me talking though so don't take it seriously.

Well, it's all the same, but it's a good same. Their songs are irresistable to me.

You sure it's Lagwagon? I actually can't hear the song due to technical difficulties, but it could be Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. I think them and Lagwagon have the same singer, and they're known for their cover songs.

I know Lagwagon did a cover of it, I'm not sure if Me First did too.

It's definitely Lagwagon. I have the cd (Trashed) with this version on it.

I have Trashed, and it's not on it. Maybe it's on a different version, or I didn't download all of the tracks.

The lyrics aren't about the same shit, though they are very simple and straight forward. The music itself is all the same. I still like them, though.

I just looked at the back of my case to make sure I'm not crazy, and it is on there.

I just checked, and the album I downloaded from Soulseek just happened to be missing tracks 10 and 14. Which, according to Wikipedia, means I am also missing "Mama Said Knock You Out".

I'm willing to bet you don't like Mr. Jones either. You have no soul!

"Mama Said Knock You Out" is a secret track after the end of "Bye For Now". It's not a separate track.

Strangely, I do, although the same can admittedly be said about that song. But it at least has good lyrics.

Yes. It's actually about the narrator and his penis, Mr. Jones, trying to become big stars in the gay porn industry.

I have a cover which is tagged as being Jimmy Eat World. It may be wrong though.

this was resolved long ago... we know it's lagwagon... game over. the topic is now about everclear, lagwagon, and songs that are as crappy as "brown eyed girl".
