Bridging The Distance

Yay! How about a litte yippie-kai-yai-yay? “For what,” you say? Only an album full of cover songs by our favorite Portland, OR bands could get the Content to get all Bruce Willis with excitement. We’ll leave it up to Arena Rock Records to explaining it to y’all:

“Bridging the Distance: Portland, OR is a city of bridges that span both the Willamette & Columbia Rivers. The Portland musicians on this compilation span time & place in bringing us updated takes on classic songs. Likewise, local non-profit, p:ear, connects with some of the city's transitional youth and helps them bridge difficult obstacles in their lives through a program of education, art & recreation. Proceeds from this compilation will benefit p:ear in their efforts.”

For all of you who need some solid power ballads to listen to while you are waiting in those god-awful lines for Spidey 3 should head over to eMusic right now and pick up the album. Since we all know you kids need your taste testers, here is a cover done by the Content beloved the Kingdom of the more than addictive Night Ranger tune “Sister Christian.” I want to see some fistpumping.
