I mentioned these on the show this past week so here are some links:

“Dark was the Night” compilation: http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Was-Night-Various-Artists/dp/B001KVW574

“War Child: Heroes” compilation: http://www.amazon.co.uk/War-Child-Heroes-Various-Artists/dp/B001O5ZNYS

I am psyched for the Grizzly Bear + Feist “Service Bell” on Dark Was the Night and the Franz Ferdinand cover of “Call Me” on War Child. I was a little disappointed in the Hot Chip cover of Joy Division’s timeless “Transmission,” but oh well.

Also, really, Lily Allen? “Straight to Hell?” Trying to cash in on the “Paper Planes” success? If you didn’t know, M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” borrows ridiculously heavily from the opening of the Clash’s “Straight to Hell.” “Straight to Hell” is definitely not my favorite Clash song but that opening is killer, part of why “Paper Planes” is such a smashing success. Well, it’s clever, I guess. I also just don’t really like Lily Allen much.

BUT check them out and benefit some great causes via the War Child organization and Red Hot (for AIDS).
