Hmm… Apparently this is a sentence. Hmm… Apparently this is a second one. Hmm… Apparently something is happening. Hmm.. Apparently I’m writing something. Hmm… Apparently I’ve got something to say. Hmm… Apparently I forgot at first… Hmm.. But apparently I remember it now again..

Hmm…

Apparently there is this band.. Hmm… Apparently this band is named ‘The Flaming Lips’. Hmm… Apparently this makes me think of a girl who had a recurring problem with inflamed lips.. Hmm.. Apparently she applied yogurt on them to reduce the inflammation.. Hmm… Apparently good to know if you have the same problem.. Hmm.. Apparently I got distracted for a bit..

Hmm…

Apparently this ‘The Flaming Lips’ band has a track. Hmm.. Apparently more than one track.. Hmm… But apparently one is extremely popular.. Hmm… Apparently the track is named ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots pt 1’.. Hmm… Apparently it is weird that I’ve never heard this track… Hmm.. Apparently this might be my chance to hear it? Hmm… Apparently I can go to this video sharing site and find this track by this band… Hmm… Apparently I found it and hmm… Apparently I can copy and paste it here so you can see and hear it too… Apparently this is it:

Apparently you could have pressed the video above and got to hear this band and that popular song.. Hmm… Apparently I just heard The Flaming Lips for the first time.. Hmm.. Apparently I don’t know a lot about music or culture… But apparently I have watched and heard the video and now know the song and heard the band. Hmm… Apparently I’m now informed enough to continue this story. Hmm… Apparently I had something to say…

Hmm…

Apparently I remember it again.. Apparently this popular ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots pt 1’ song by The Flaming Lips is one that is a favorite song for bands and projects to cover.. Hmm.. Apparently you all know what a cover means right? Hmm… Apparently ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots pt 1’ likes to be covered up by others.. Hmm.. Apparently it is fun to play someone else their song? Hmm… Apparently it appears that especially this song is fun to be covered… Hmm… Apparently that must be the case…

Hmm…

Apparently I was speechless for a moment… Hmm… But apparently regained my voice… Hmm… Apparently I had something to say.. Hmm.. Apparently I forgot.. Hmm… Apparently…

Hmm…

Ah yes apparently I was here talking because of a cover… Hmm… Apparently a cover of this song… Hmm.. Apparently done by Japandy..
Hmm… Apparently it sounds a bit more drugged.. Hmm… Apparently I like the robot voice that appears somewhere. Hmm… Apparently this cover makes me a bit sleepy. Hmm.. Apparently that’s all what I wanted to say.. Hmm… But apparently it would be rude to disappear without a link.. Hmm… Apparently if you click the following picture you can go and hear this cover version by Japandy:

Hmm…

Apparently I feel like posting another picture. Hmm.. But apparently behind this one is another cover of that same song… Hmm… Apparently it’s not bad. Hmm… Apparently a nice cover… Hmm… Apparently I don’t seem to understand the reason for all these covers as they sound pretty close to the original.. Hmm.. Apparently a cover is no such a thing as a remix opportunity… Hmm… Apparently here is that picture I wanted to post.. Apparently if you click it you will be able to hear the cover of this song by ‘Pockets’:

Hmm…

Apparently you have to be a fan of these ‘The Flaming Lips’ to fully enjoy these covers… Hmm.. Apparently I’m not a fan.. Hmm.. I just heard the song for the first time earlier on in the apparent gigantic post. Hmm… Apparently I feel like checking out another cover of this song.. Hmm.. Apparently there are so many, there might be a golden nugget somewhere.. Hmm… Apparently I found one with a picture that looks a bit like my face from hearing too much ‘Yoshimi battles the pink robots’ cover versions… Hmm… Apparently this song is driving me nuts.. Hmm… Apparently a point of view not shared by many.. Hmm… Well apparently here is one last picture that if you click it leads you to a cover version of… Hmm.. Apparently done by something called ‘The Toetags’ :

Hmm…

Apparently I found a nugget just when wanting to give up.. Hmm.. Apparently It isn’t a golden one.. Hmm.. Apparently more a turd colored nugget made out of clay. Hmm… Apparently I like this cover as the covering artist seems not to pretend to be a ‘The Flaming Lips’ copy cat, but apparently gives this song it’s own jus d’orange flavor. Hmm… Apparently responsible for this likable individualistic cover is ‘Arbolus Blancos’ and apparently you can hear it if you are crazy enough to click the picture below:
Hmm…
Apparently I’ve heard enough covers for today. Hmm… Apparently I feel more cultivated by being exposed to this popular song. Hmm ‘The Flaming Lips’ Hmm… Yoshimi battles the pink robots pt 1 hmm… Hmm.. Nope, apparently even after being exposed I don’t feel like doing a cover. Hmm…

But apparently thanks to the covers I actually became more appreciative to the original… hmm… Maybe The Flaming Lips can cover their own song… Hmm… That would apparently be a terrific idea! Hmm.. Apparently the world would be a better place when there would be no more best off albums, but just bands covering their own popular songs! Hmm… Hmmm… Hmmmmm…….

Xxxxxx

Hank.
