Aly Spaltro, better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, is hard at work recording her next album in New York, set to be released sometime in 2012. Spaltro's childhood, which she spent listening to oldies and making mix tapes from the radio, might have served as early inspiration to record her version of Bob Dylan's "All I Really Want To Do."

"I hadn't heard Cher's version of 'All I Really Want To Do' until this past year," she explains to Rolling Stone. "I love the warmth of the recording, the simplicity of the melody and the verse-chorus repetitive structure. I love how you can tell the band recorded the song live in a room together." 

When Lady Lamb the Beekeeper was given the opportunity to record a song of her choice in a proper studio for the website BrooklynBased.net, she chose to record this song live with her full band. "I wanted to get a similar feel as Cher's version," Spaltro says.

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's album will be released in 2012, but you can download her version of "All I Really Want To Do" for free here.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
