Not my favourite Tourists track but it did get them on the map I suppose
Another of those oft-covered songs - I always thought Elvis Costello did the original, but I recently found out that although he wrote the lyrics, it was first released by Robert Wyatt and then by Costello a year later. Which one should be classed as the cover, I wonder?
Anyway, I really like this version that Suede recorded for the HELP album that was released in the mid 90s in aid of the Warchild charity during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. It was a great album with some original tracks and some interesting covers of all sorts of songs by some excellent bands, well worth a listen if you haven't heard it.
Sinead O'Connor's cover of Ode to Billy Joe was another of my favourites from the same album - it really gives me goosebumps.
George Michael ‘s version of ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me ‘ - sublime
And Mark Romanek's video is a great work of art.
Dylan wrote it, Fairport Convention covered it, Sandy Denny's vocals still give me goosebumps…
Can you cover your own songs? Plant and Page remade a Led Zeppelin classic and made it even better...watch till the end if you want to see some musicians really enjoying what they do.
I love this Patti Smith version...
Original...which most people have never heard.
Cover...which many more people have.
(For older readers, the third one is a cover of that young Ariana Grande lass.)
Anybody going to Cropredy this year?
I’ve just become aware of Deep Purple’s cover of Help. It seems much more in keeping with the lyrics; and apparently John Lennon wanted it played slower than the Beatles did:
Eric Bogle brilliant; but so is Shane McGowan
The Pogues The band played waltzing matilda
