A member of the Afterword Parish has suggested this is the cover song that makes them laugh. I’m sure we know of other such belters that can raise a chortle in these dark days of post-Brexit and…(that’s enough doom and gloom. Ed)
I know we have covered covers many a time, but the Independent wants suggestions for covers that are better than the original. They suggest ‘ All Along the Watchtower’ by Jimi Hendrix. Any ideas to top10 @independent.co co.uk
I saw the wonderful Calexico last night and they covered Alone Again Or & Love Will Tear Us Apart. I don’t have time to do a Nights Out but in addition to a great set of their own songs, these two really stood out. https://youtu.be/SEhFUm5qy1w
Songs for a bride on the cusp of a lifetime’s commitment. All for love.
I’ll start with something borrowed, a cover song, Charlotte Gainsbourg singing Hey Joe as reimagined by Beck. The subject matter, a warning. A warning of infidelity, murder and escape. Not very romantic, you may say, but, sometimes, the bride is understandably nervous.
I bet the Afterword can dream up many more, more appropriate songs.
