Thanks. Will take a look.
The sounds of silence The cover version will knock your socks off…
We’re hating on them because the covers are sh*t !
Disagree. They’re not trying to be high art or enduring anthems. They are simply good pop. There’s room in my playlist for some of that.
I like PSB, but i don’t think those covers are their best work.
Does this count as a cover? I don’t know who did the original.
I mean I could google…
Wilson Pickett performed the early popular version, …
… but it was written & first performed by Mack Rice …
But honestly, the Commitments did a way better cover than Jimmy,…
“Sir” Mack Rice is the original. Apparently. According to GooWiki.
The line, 'All you wanna do is ride around Sally…'
Always made me think of a very large lady and someone driving laps around her…I dunno, because he wasn’t very nice or something.
This is a traditional Irish song that’s been covered by many, including Van Morrison, The Corrs and Mary Black. But this version by Sinead O’Connor blows them all away.
She’s mad as a cut snake but sure can belt out a song.
And one more while I’m in a Celtic mood. The harmonies from the Finn brothers make me love this track.
You simply cannot go wrong with the Rhodes Piano.
She does a truly sensational version of She Moved Through the Fair virtually a capella.
Like a bit of Seals and Crofts their original was very good, laid back but the Isley’s version blows it to bits, bit more soulful side has aggots too.
Thanks @Shelton10. Great version that I hadn’t heard before.
My favourite track of hers is purely vocal. Just her and backing vocalists coming in one at a time.
