Unusual Cover Versions

BETH ORTON & SKINNY PELEMBE – “WHO BY FIRE” (LEONARD COHEN COVER)..........................think I will stick with the original but its interesting.

Says Skinny Pelembe: “I’ve covered a tune by one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Leonard Cohen. Sung it with Beth Orton, who has one of the best voices of all time! One of the best drummers of all time, Malcolm Catto, is keeping the time! And I sound F***ing fantastic at this point in time!”

Never heard this before even though it came out 14 years ago. Its just been released on a black and silver 7" vinyl. Cover of Gordon Lightfoot classic.

The Dandy Warhols - The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (7" Edit)

Full 9:08 version here

JULIANA HATFIELD – “TELEPHONE LINE” (ELO COVER)....Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO will be out November 17. Quite like this version.

The following videos are from Rocknmob. Hundered of musicans recreating a classic Rock song.
They are based in Moscow, so maybe some people may want to boycott them, but for me it shows how music can bring people together for a few minutes.
