I recall the music of my teenage years with fondness and most of them were spent in the early 1980’s so I was fairly shocked to discover decades later that a song I had long associated with the ‘new’ concept of a synth-based duo namely Tainted Love by Soft Cell was in fact a cover of a song by Gloria Jones
Both are brilliant in their own very different ways
I love the original of Eight Miles High by The Byrds but the version by Husker Du is just a mind-shreddingly brilliant version that tears off the head of the original and screams down the remaining gaping hole
Okay where exactly am I going with this ramble?
I’ve always loved Red House Painters take on Neil Young’s Midnight On The Bay but until yesterday I’d never actually heard the original & now that I have it convinced me even more how much more brilliant the RHP version actually is
I mean Mark does a better impression of Neil Young than Neil Young himself
Likewise the RHP version of John Denver’s I’m Sorry is again probably at least as good as the original
Anyone else want to humour me by adding their tuppence worth to this?
