Strange but true (h/t):
What incongruous covers make you arch your eyebrows?
The Beatles’ “Across the Universe”- video by Fiona Apple:
Here’s another version by Rufus Wainright
Two covers of Joni Mitchell songs by men(below).
1. That Song about the Midway
Dave Van Ronk:That Song About the Midway:
Richard Thompson: “Woodstock”:
This one works for me .
As Mitchell wasn’t there either,it always sounded a bit second-hand when she sang “we” .
One good turn…
I always thought the Cowboy Junkies cover of Lou Reed’s immortal “Sweet Jane” sounded like Joan Baez on Quaaludes (which conjures up an interesting visual):
But Margo Timmins is very easy on the eyes……
and back to you Matt, with Robert Plant’s oh no don’t do it video cover of
“If I were a carpenter”
I’m done with bad ones for now, they’re too easy to find on youtubs,
maybe I’ll look for a great cover of a not-so-great song.
Original by R.E.M.
Now, that was a good cover, Adrena.
Here is a not so good cover of Losing My Religion by Tori Amos - but it’s a hoot.
Oh, Tori, it must have been the Florida air!
