Neil Diamond, “The Chanukah Song Song” [Adam Sandler Cover]
We’re still reeling from the fact that we just typed the words “Adam Sandler Cover,” but here you go. And you know what else? Dude kind of rocks it out (it’s produced by current Guns n’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba!). The video is bizarrely literal but, uh, this is Neil Diamond covering Adam Sandler. Happy Holidays.

Passion Pit, “Moths Wings” [Eric Solomon Remix]
Solomon takes the ball and runs with it. This remix starts out fairly straightforward and then goes bright-lights glam-disco after the first verse, fat synths streaking up the center and the vocals sliced, diced and julienned. It’s Passion Pit by way of Daft Punk.

Mark Kozelek, “White Christmas” [Cover]
Former Red House Painters frontman croons and stumbles his way through this holiday classic. That he ends up laughing about halfway through only adds to the charm.

Toro y Moi, “Human Nature” [Michael Jackson Cover]
We know, we know — you’ve probably had your fill of Michael Jackson covers by now. But this bright and brilliant reworking by Toro y Moi was too irresistible to ignore.

Suede, “Heronie” [Live]
And what better way to close out the week than with a bit of vintage Britpop. Suede, wherefore art thou? And whenfore can you get back together and come to the States?
