“Isn’t that the Far East Movement’s Rocketeer?” I asked after the song on the radio ended.
“Yes,” replied Number One Son, “but I like Nigahiga’s version.”
Nigahiga’s version? They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and there is massive flattery of “Rocketeer”, as it’s been covered and covered and covered… See some of my favorites after jump.
Here is a version by David Choi. It’s fun to spot and look for the many “special guests” in it.
I really like this sweetly lyrical version from Clara C. The trumpet is a nice touch.
I am sure that there are other good ones out there, like this one from J-Ricz and Dutch. What’s your favorite Rocketeer cover?
