Covering Nirvana Unplugged:
The Original Versions

I must admit I was a delighted to hear the news that Courtney Love is in talks to make a movie about the life of Kurt Cobain. According to Access Hollywood, Courtney has acquired the film rights to the book "Heavier Than Heaven" - a biography of the Nirvana singer written by Charles Cross. She also posted the following message on a fan site: "It has no script and no director attached, let alone stars. But if the movie is made it will of course be an A list and high end film." My pick to play Kurt? Ewan McGregor. The guy already proved he had the pipes in the 2001 movie, "Moulin Rouge." And how about Rachel McAdams as Courtney?

So in honor of the news, I decided to put together a 6 pack of the original versions of songs Nirvana performed from their Grammy Award winning "MTV Unplugged In New York." By the way, it's been 14 years since the performance. My how time flies. Check out my favorite take from the special, Nirvana's cover of "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam."

Here's the list of songs included in the six-pack:
The Vaselines - Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam Mp3
David Bowie - The Man Who Sold The World
Meat Puppets - Plateau Mp3
Meat Puppets - Lake Of Fire Mp3
Meat Puppets - Oh Me Mp3
Leadbelly - Where Did You Sleep Last Night? Mp3
