I was pleasantly surprised by Hyde's cover of Life on Mars - I think Hyde was definitely channeling Bowie. Give it a listen & tell me what you think... Life on Mars? Vamps version
Life on Mars? Bowie version
I'm was watching Oprah & Glen Close was on promoting a program that helps inmates & veterans alike. Inmates are given puppies to train as service dogs for veterans.
I've always been interested in this type of project - I know it's never been politically fashionable to have any sympathy for inmates - but living in jail hardly seems like a place conducive for healing & becoming a productive member of society... we have so many animals that need homes & a big population of folk in jail who need love, responsibility, a reason to keep living, for continual improvementpuppies behind bars
"but living in jail hardly seems like a place conducive for healing & becoming a productive member of society..."
so true (it's proven by the numbers of inmates that are freed and keep committing crimes to get back in - or the ones that get depressed when they get out after a long sentence). and i think this is a great project for them!
bowie cover? i'm so there *downloads after this comment if this computer lets her >.>;;* [EDIT] AHA bless you, it's youtube XD;;

I nearly cried when I learned about the VAMPS cover of "Life On Mars". David Bowie has always been one of my favorite musicians, so for two of my fandoms to come together like this is a real dream come true, hehe.
That sounds like an amazing project with the puppies! Animals have such great healing power, and to give inmates this sort of chance is beneficial to both greatly beneficial to them and to society.
Don't you just love the fact that VAMPS likes to cover these old skool songs? It's like: what's the next song in your marvelous collection of covers. First The Beatles (well that's hyde), then Shampoo, then Bowie... it's like what's next? I would love to hear VAMPS cover Depeche Mode. I know hyde likes them. ^_~ I think he could be successful~!
I hope the shampoo cover was just a lapse in judgement ! I'd love to hear more beatle covers - blackbird, julia, and perhaps one of their greatest songs "In my Life"
Haha... my fave Beatles song (er... this is hard... cuz I'm a self-confessed Beatlemaniac) is A Day in a Life. I can't really picture hyde singing that. Haha~ maybe Happiness is a Warm Gun would be nice though. Yeah, I was a little surprised when VAMPS covered Shampoo. It was very random, but it turned out better than I thought it would turn out. Hehe...
