    Radiohead - Nobody Does it Better
    [YOUTUBE]kHe-iwAI9BE[/YOUTUBE]
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!
    --SeattleUte

    He who drinks beer sleeps well. He who sleeps well cannot sin. He who does not sin goes to heaven. The logic is impeccable.

    Ok, you can boo me for picking the most obvious and cliched response for this topic, but I'm doing it anyway.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/0wxj0B7vsss&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/0wxj0B7vsss&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    Buckley just owns this thing. You hear his version and completely forget that it's a Cohen song. In fact, all the covers on Grace are outstanding.

    (It should also be noted that I tend to avoid listening to this song because it usually brings me to tears)

    I'll throw this one out there since I'm listening to the album as we speak and think it is a nice cover:

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/1UqlIBep6rk&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/1UqlIBep6rk&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    Conor Oberst sings Dylan's part on the album, but I couldn't find a clip with him in it. There was one with Ben Gibbard filling in for him, but the sound quality was horrible.

    And of course my favorite artist collides with my father's favorite:

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/7fAz54YWw6I&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/7fAz54YWw6I&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    Wasn't this song in Shrek? It is in some cartoon, but I can't remember which one.

    The Yorke cover of after the gold rush is pretty good. I was at that concert (and once I get to say that instead of Triplet; amazing) and it was pretty good. I try to get to all the bridge school concerts; they are almost always good shows.

    The whole notion of covers is very interesting. I once read somebody analyze American culture. They said that in American culture we are always looking for the next new thing. Once something is old, we discard it. IN other cultures, they tend to try to perfect the old thing; they communicate with the past by learning what was unique, what was essential, about the thing the ancestors did and try to improve on it, but also to capture it again. So you do an old song again, and again, or a traditional dance over and over. I suppose covers, if you remove the crass attempts at simply selling records (and yes, as a matter of fact, I was thinking of the Ataris as an example here), are a version of trying to get the thing right, of trying to communicate across generational lines. So a new artist takes what another gnereation has done, and tries to find the the essence, or the groove, or the idea in the art and express it again.

    So a great cover is likely to either take the essence and re-interpret it, without losing it, or to re-create it almost exactly being successful only if it captures the same emotion, or the same idea, as the original.

    Sheryl Crow did the worst cover ever when she bastardized Sweet Child O' Mine.

    Anyone who likes her version is a FLAMING homo.

    Maybe. I think it undermines the point a little, but I suppose if you are of a certain age they say different things.

    I think Sheryl Crows version is not bad. It is a different feel but I guess I prefer to listen to her than a pudgy sour ball with a nappy on his head. It would have been nice to have some guitar work instead of the mighty Wurlitzer solo in the middle of the song, however.

    I am not ashamed to say this because, although I can't recall why, I know you have already inducted me into the 'flaming' club before.

    Buckley's cover of Hallelujah is awesome. That song is amazing.

    I also think Cash's version of Hurt is incredible as well.

    I've posted this before but I love this cover:

    [YOUTUBE]8-8nkkOA_AM[/YOUTUBE]

    As far as punk covers, I don't think any of them can be taken seriously. That said, there's a place in my heart for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. I always liked their cover of One Tin Soldier.

    Bruddah Iz did this one well:

    And I liked the arrangement here by Johansen:

    Although I should probably be offended byt this question, I refuse to be and will simply say that I am pleased to not only have been to a good concert triplet didn't even know about but also to be able to teach Mr. Popular Culture about the Bridge School Benefit concerts. IF you have never been you should try to come up this year and I'll go with you. Search on the web, you will see Brother Neil (almost) always has an eclectic lineup that brings interesting folks together.

    When you're here you can FINALLY buy me the streak dinner you promised me at Vic Stewarts.

    I can't find a good link to video or audio for it, but Quicksand covering "How Soon is Now" by The Smiths.

    Ouch. Boylenover wins, hands down. That is so horrible it defies description. What was she thinking? People pay MONEY to see that? If vegas is ever burned like Sodom and Gomorrah it will be because of something like this, not all of its other vices.

    This is assuming there is anything rational or reasonable about Celine Dion.

    Landslide by the Smashing Pumpkins. I'll take Billy Corgan's voice over Stevie Nicks any day.

    Also, Always on My Mind by Willie Nelson. Better than Elvis. Better than the Pet Shop Boys.

    ha, sorry if my question read poorly. I actually was expressing surprise that you went to a radiohead concert specifically, not that you went to a concert, in general. In fact, I am not surprised at all that you would go to a Neil Young show. I had never really heard you express much interest either way in radiohead, so that is why I was surprised.

    I had never heard of Bridge School Benefit shows. Sounds cool.

    ps we need to plan the Vic's trip on a weekend that bluegoose is going to be out of town. Sounds like these days, he will show up with Steel and they will both be hungry from playing volleyball. I can't afford that many steaks.

    The Dixie Chix version of landslide is pretty good as well.

    James Taylor's versions of Everyday (Buddy Holly) and Up On the Roof are both solid covers. He's done several over the years tat I enjoy.

    I've seen Brad Paisley in concert twice do Walk of Life by Dire Straights and thats a pretty good version as well.

    Not surprisingly, Oasis has a number of Beatles covers, and I like those.

    Didn't Brenda Lee originate that one? Man I can't stand Brenda Lee.

    I didn't even realize Manfield Mann's Blinded by the Light was a remake until last week, but it's ten thousand times better than the original.

    I prefer Garth's Shameless to Billy's.

    Whitney's rendition of I Will Always Love You rivals the original.

    UB40 improved on Neil Diamond's Red Red Wine, but then that's not saying much.

    This one seems to me like the Don Henley song. Just as it seems absurd for the Ataris to try to sing that you can never look back, Natalie and company failed to convey the sense of retrospect and the struggle to come to terms with age that makes the original so powerful.

    Babs, babs, babs. nothing is 10,000 times better than Bruce. Really. Nothing. But, to be truthful, Mannie Mann and his band do a fine job and I think it is an excellent cover.

    Now whitney's version (sung pre-crack) not only rivals the original, it kills the original.

    You are spot on. Stevie knew what she had written and sang about it with true feeling. Natalie whiny Maines misses the whole point of the song, and her phrasing is all wrong.
