Random cover song: Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios) – “All for Leyna” (Billy Joel)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover is from Brian Wahlstrom of Scorpios and Joey Cape’s Bad Loud fame, covering Billy Joel’s “All for Leyna”. The original is taken from Billy Joel’s 1980 album Glass House, while Wahlstrom’s version was a little something he did for fun.

You can listen to both version below.
