about

UNDER THE COVERS is a collection of cover songs covered by Glad Judy. Call it a cop-out, but it's all about how GJ they sound in the end. And all these songs are great in their original form, too! And, I recorded these tracks under my covers. See what I did there?

Track Name: When I'm With You by Best Coast
When I'm With You

The world is lazy
but you and me
we're just crazy

So when I'm with you, I have fun
Yeah when I'm with you, I have fun
When I'm with you, I have fun
Yeah when I'm with you, I have fun

The world is lazy
but you and me
We're just crazy

So when I'm with you, I have fun
When I'm with you, I have fun
When I'm with you, I have fun
Yeah when I'm with you, I have fun

Ever since I was a little girl
My mama always told me
there'd be boys like you

So when I'm with you, I have fun
When I'm with you, I have fun
Yeah when I'm with you, I have fun
When I'm with you, I have fun

I hate sleeping alone.
I HATE sleeping alone.
I hate SLEEPING alone.
I hate sleeping ALONE.

ALONE! ALONE!
ALONE! ALONE!

Track Name: Friend in Me by Randy Newman
Friend in Me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Oh, you've got a friend in me


Oh, you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
You've got troubles, well I've got 'em too and
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and we see it through
Oh, you've got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Big and stronger too
Maybe
But none of them will ever love you the way that I do
It's me and you, girl

And as the years go by
Well, our friendship will never die
You're gonna see
It's our destiny
Oh, you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me, one more time!
Oh, you've got a friend in me

-Randy Newman
Track Name: Paparazzi by Lady Gaga
Paparazzi

We are the crowd

We're c-coming out

Got my flash on it's true

Need that picture of you

It's so magical!

We'd be so fantastic, oh



Leather and jeans,

Your watch glamorous

Not sure what it means

But this picture of us

It don't have a price
Ready for those flashing lights

'Cause you know that baby I-



I'm your biggest fan

I'll follow you until you love me

Paparazzi

Baby there's no other superstar

You know that I'll be your
Paparazzi



Promise I'll be kind

But I won't stop until that boy is mine

Baby you'll be famous

Chase you down until you love me

Paparazzi



I'll be your girl backstage at your show

Velvet ropes and guitars

Yeah cause you are my rock star
In-between the sets

Eyeliner and cigarettes



Shadow is burnt, yellow dance and return
My lashes are dry, purple teardrops I cry
It don't have a price
Loving you is cherry pie

And you know that baby I-

I'm your biggest fan

I'll follow you until you love me

Paparazzi

Baby there's no other superstar

You know that I'll be your

Paparazzi


Promise I'll be kind

But I won't stop until that boy is mine

Baby you'll be famous

Chase you down until you love me

Paparazzi



Real good, we dance in the studio

Step-step to that shit on the radio

Don't stop, for anyone

We are plastic but we'll still have fun



I'm your biggest fan

I'll follow you until you love me

Paparazzi

Baby there's no other superstar

You know that I'll be your

Paparazzi


Promise I'll be kind

But I won't stop until that boy is mine

Baby you'll be famous

Chase you down until you love me

Paparazzi

Track Name: Worried Shoes by Karen O and The Kids
Worried Shoes

I took my lucky break and I broke it in two,
Put on my worried shoes, my worried shoes,
Took me so many miles and they never wore out,
My worried shoes, my worried shoes,

Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo,
my worried shoes,

I made a mistake that I never forgot, 
Tied knots in the laces of my worried shoes,
Every step that I take is another mistake, 
I march further and further away in my worried shoes,

Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo,
my worried shoes,

My shoes took me down a crooked path,
Away from all welcome mats, 
My worried shoes,
I looked all around and saw the sun shining down,
Took off my worried shoes, my worried shoes,

Oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo, oo-o-o-oo o-oo-ooo,
My worried shoes,

-Daniel Johnston
Track Name: Linger by The Cranberries
Linger

If you, if you could return, don't let it burn,
Don't let it fade.
I'm sure I'm not being rude, but it's just your attitude,
It's tearing me apart, It's ruining everything.

I swore, I swore I would be true, and
Honey, so did you.
Why were you holding her hand?
Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I miss you. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger,
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought I loved you
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong. And
If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie,
Things wouldn't be so confused and
I wouldn't feel so used,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I miss you. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger,
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

And I miss you. You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger,
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I'm such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to?
Do you have to let it linger?

-Dolores O'Riordan
Track Name: Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie by Joanna Newsom
Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie

That means no
Where I come from
I am cold, out waiting for the day to come
I chew my lips, and I scratch my nose
Feels so good to be a rose

Oh don't, don't you lift me up
Like I'm that shy, no no no no no,
Just give it up
There are bats all dissolving in a row
Into the wishy-washy dark that cannot let go
And I cannot let go
So I thank the lord
And I thank his sword
Though it be mincing up the morning, slightly bored

O, morning without warning like a hole
And I watch you go.

There are some mornings when the sky looks like a road
There are some dragons who were built to have and hold
And some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly
And some great bellies ache with many bumblebees
(and they sting so terribly)

I do as I please
Now I'm on my knees
Your skin is something that I stir into my tea
And I am watching you
and you are starry, starry, starry
and I'm tumbling down, and I check a frown
It's why I love this town
Well, just look around
Just see me serenaded hourly! Celebrated sourly!
Dedicated dourly; waltzing with the open sea
Clam, crab, cockle, cowrie
Will you just look at me?

-Joanna Newsom
Track Name: Poor Song by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Poor Song

Baby, I'm afraid of a lot of things
But I ain't scared of loving you
And baby, I know you're afraid of a lot of things
But don't be scared of love, 'cause

People will say all kinds of things
That don't mean a damn to me
'Cause all I see is what's in front of me
And that's you.

Well, I've been dragged all over the place
I've taken hits time just don't erase and
Baby I can see you've been fucked with too, but
That don't mean your loving days are through, 'cause

People will say all kinds of things
That don't mean a damn to me.
'Cause all I see is what's in front of me
And that's you.

Well, I maybe just a fool.
But I know you're just as cool.
And cool kids...
They belong together.

-Karen O
Track Name: I Gotta Find Peace of Mind by Lauryn Hill
I Gotta Find Peace of Mind

I gotta find peace of mind, I gotta find peace of mind
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible.

He says there's no me without him,
Please help me forget about him
He takes all my energy, trapped in my memory
Constantly holding me, constantly holding me...

I need to tell you all, all the pain he's caused, mm-hmm
I need to tell I'm, I'm undone because, mm-mmm
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible.
He says it's impossible without him, but I know it's possible

To finally be in love, and know the real meaning of
A lasting relationship, not based on ownership
I trust every part of you,
'Cause all that you say you do

You love me despite myself, sometimes I fight myself
I just can't believe that you, would have anything to do
With someone so insecure, someone so immature
Oh you inspire me, to be the higher me

You make my desire pure, you make my desire pure
Oh! Just tell me what to say, I can't find the words to say
Please don't be mad with me, I have no identity
All that I've known is gone, all I was building on..

I don't wanna walk with you, but how do I talk to you?

Touch my mouth with your hands,
Touch my mouth with your hands
Oh, I wanna understand, the meaning of your embrace
I know now I have to face the temptations of my past:

Please don't let me disgrace, where my devotion lays
Now that I know the truth, now that it's no excuse
Keeping me from your love, what was I thinking of?
Holding me from your love, what was I thinking of?

You are my peace of mind, that old me is left behind.
You are my peace of mind, that old me is left behind.
He says it's impossible, but I know it's possible!
He says it's improbable, but I know it's tangible!
He says it's not grab-able, but I know it's have-able!
'Cause anything is possible, yeah, anything is possible.

Oh! Please come free my mind,
Can you see my mind? Oh,
Won't you come free my mind?

Oh, I know it's possible.
Anything, anything, anything, anything, yeah.
Anything, anything, anything, anything, yeah.
Anything, anything, anything, anything, yeah [.]

Oh, free! Free your mind.
Free your, free your mind...
Free, free your mind.

Oh, it's so possible, oh it's so possible
I'm telling you: it's possible, I'm telling you it's possible to
Free, free free...free your mind.
Free, free: free your mind.
Free! Free!
Free, free, free, free.

You're my peace of mind, that old me is left behind.
You're my peace of mind, you're my peace of mind,
You're my peace of mind, you're my peace of mind.
You're my peace of mind,

What a joy it is to be alive.

To get another chance,
Everyday's another chance.
To get it right this time:
What a joy it is to be alive.

Oh what a merciful, merciful, merciful God
What a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful God
Oh, what a merciful, merciful, merciful
Merciful, oh wonderful.

-Lauryn Hill
Track Name: First Orgasm by The Dresden Dolls
First Orgasm

It is a Thursday
I get up early
It is a challenge
I'm usually lazy

I make some coffee
I eat some rice chex
And then I sit down
To check my inbox

I only read a word or two
I stare across the street and see
The faces and the blue

The first orgasm of the morning
Is cold and hard as hell.
There won't be any second coming,
As far as I can tell.

Well, I arch my back 'cause
I'm very close now,
It's very cold here
By the window.

There are some school kids
Yelling, and running,
I barely notice
That I am coming. And

The first orgasm of the morning
Is like a fire drill:
It's nice to get a little warning,
But not enjoyable.

I am too busy to have friends.
A lover would just complicate my plans.
So I will never look for love again:
I'm taking matters into my own hands.
I'm taking matters into my own hands,
(I'm taking matters into my own hands.)

Well:

I think I could last at least a week
Without someone to hold me
I think I could last at least a week
Without someone to hold me
Won't you hold me?
Won't you hold me?

-Amanda Palmer
Track Name: Samson by Regina Spektor
Samson

You are my sweetest downfall.
I loved you first, I loved you first.
Beneath the sheets
Of paper lies my truth.

And I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met.

Samson went back to bed,
Not much hair left on his head.
He ate a slice of wonder bread
And came right back to bed.

And the history books forgot about us
And the bible didn't mention us.
The bible didn't mention us?
Not even once?

And you are my sweetest downfall.
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came falling on our heads
But they're just dulled light,
They're just dulled light.
Your hair was long when we first met.

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was wet,
Told me I was beautiful,
And came into my bed.

Oh, I cut his hair myself one night.
A pair of dulled scissors and
A yellow light.
And he told me that
I'd done alright,
And he kissed me
'Til the morning light, the morning light
And he kissed me 'til
The morning, mourning light.

And you are my sweetest downfall. And
I loved you first.

-Regina Spektor
