Some Covers For Saturday Part IV

Ok, I know I might have posted some of these before, but if you haven't heard any of these before, I really think you ought to!

These tracks were on a 12" single in 1992, and can now be found on a Nick cave compilation called Rarities...

Nick Cave and Shane MacGowan -'What a wonderful World (Louis Armstrong cover).' mp3

Nick Cave -'Rainy Night In Soho (Pogues cover).' mp3

Shane MacGowan -'Lucy (Nick Cave cover).' mp3

Dinosaur Jr's take on the Cure's classic as become legendary:

Dinosaur Jr -'Just Like Heaven.' mp3

This was a split 7" single a couple of years back:

Franz Ferdinand -'Get Up And Use Me (Fire Engines cover).' mp3

Fire Engines -'Jacqueline (Franz Ferdinand cover).' mp3

These three songs are probably my favourite three cover versions of all time:

Schneider TM -'The Light 3000 (Smiths cover).' mp3 (AKA There Is A Light That Never Goes Out)

This Mortal Coil -'Song To The Siren (Tim Buckley cover).' mp3

Jeff Buckley -'Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen cover).' mp3

Three songs I haven't posted before:

Siouxsie and the Banshees -'This Wheel's On Fire (Julie Driscoll and the Brian Auger trinity cover).' mp3

Maria McKee -'Has He Got a Friend For Me? (Richard Thompson cover).' mp3

Elf Power -'Upside Down (Jesus and Mary Chain cover).' mp3

arrrggghhh, the siouxsie link doesn't work, i'll have to dig out mu old 12" now, i'd forgotten about this tune, until now that is, the nick cave and shane mcgowan tunes not bad, although it does sound a bit like pissed karaoke, charlie brooker described shane mcgowan as resembling a puff pastry model of the moon studded with broken teeth, made me laugh anyway

Thanks for the Dinosaur jr track. For what its worth my favourite cover of all time is across the universe as done by the much under rated Family Cat. Classic.

Or lola by the Cud Band that rocked...

Haven't heard those covers, but I guess I should investigate.
