Also for the lolz, and not even a cover – do we have a mash-up thread? – brubeck x stranglers

That's a bit like the Townes van Zandt cover of Dead Flowers, which is so authentic it makes you wonder if it was actually the Stones covering him...

To keep on that theme Larkin Poe covering Townes

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

DJ Random has this evening served up The White Stripes' version of “I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself”, which definitely qualifies, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' “Something In The Air”, which almost certainly doesn’t.

Bzzt! Repetition!  Mind you it was pretty special the first time you posted it in Sept too.
Oh dear. Not only am I losing my memory, I'm exposing my boring, predictable listening habits.

Actually, it's just occurred to me that Dave Brubeck and the Stranglers are like opposite sides of a circle, meeting at a point. Brubeck and gang: so square and nerdy in their suits and just concentrated on the music that they're cool without caring 60 years later. Stranglers: so cool and darkly chic that they're actually decent musicians 40 years later even if they do care about it.

A friend, who is a massive Sisters of Mercy fan, just shared this on facebook, in honour of vaccine-facilitator Dolly Parton. I can't believe I've never heard it before. It's fantastic...

He also shared with me their take on Hot Chocolate's Emma, which is quite remarkable:

I like the Photos version, featuring Wendy Wu.

OK, I know I've got previous with Patax, but I still think they've done a brilliant cover of Yesterday, If you're going to listen to it, it builds, stay with it.
