Get Ready

This is a song from the new Black Eyed Peas album. They didn't remake the song, but did sample That's What You Get.

Girlfriend isn't Michael's song, it's Paul's. And Ain't No Sunshine isn't Michael's either...

On a mod note, you need to add the www to the beginning of the YouTube links or they won't embed.

Was initially looking for unexpected J5 covers, those I posted in previous message are from a band that I know and like, was looking for more.
But after excluding some covers that I didn't actually like, I stumbled up on this which I think sounds great (I have no idea who is that band) :

Girlfriend isn't Michael's song, it's Paul's.

On the other hand, I read that Paul wrote the song thinking that Michael could sing it. Years after when Quincy worked with Michael, he brought that song back.
(No idea if Quincy had talked with Paul or if it was random.) (Read that in Richard Lecocq's book.)
