5. I Don't Want to Be - Gavin DeGraw
Tegan and Sara covered this song to be featured in One Tree Hill
, and it's honestly a crime that a full version wasn't released as the bit we did get to hear is fantastic.
6. Turnpike Ghost - Steel Train
Woah, this one is dancey as hell. Yes, please.
7. Fool To Cry - The Rolling Stones
Another classic rock cover flawlessly turned into an acoustic number. Is there any song these two can't
sound fantastic on? Also, they covered it for the TV show Girls
, if you're into that kinda thing.
8. Man With Two Brains - The Rentals
Tegan and Sara covered this song by tragically under-appreciated rock band The Rentals (fronted by one time Weezer
bassist Matt Sharp) for a Rentals tribute album called Friends of P - Tribute to The Rentals
, which also featured Tokyo Police Club
9. Rebel Rebel - David Bowie
Another classic rock song covered by Tegan and Sara but this time, it's not acoustic and it's a total throwback to baby T&S, and 2000s era YouTube videos of hastily made slideshows.
10. I Ran (So Far) - A Flock of Seagulls
This one is an absolute gem. You can hear the entire process of the two getting talked into covering the song live back in 2009, or you could just skip to 3:38 to hear the cover, but I recommend listening to the entire thing as there is some great banter between the girls and their fans.
The Con X
will be out on October 22nd, and you'll be able to hear some great renditions of Tegan and Sara by artists including: Bleachers
, Hayley Williams from Paramore
, Sara Bareilles
, and of course CHVRVHES.
