Random Conversation

Discussing covers with my friend Jeff:

autographedcat: I have an entire album consiting of bluegrass covers of AC/DC songs

JTW RCCC: Yeah, I’ve heard Hayseed Dixie before 🙂

autographedcat: 🙂

JTW RCCC: Dolly Parton’s cover of “Shine” infinitely improves on the original

autographedcat: yes, it does

autographedcat: i found her cover of Stairway to Heaven less essential, though it was a competant cover

JTW RCCC: And, of course, Trent Reznor will never be able to play “Hurt” again thanks to Johnny Cash

autographedcat: heh.

autographedcat: I always wanted to hear Trent Reznor cover “Afternoon Delight” by the Starland Vocal Band

  1. Oh, I would pay good money for that one. That would be quite the cover wouldn’t it.

    Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins did a great cover version of Fleetwood Mac’s Silver Spring which is quite lovely itself.

      Really? I remember their cover of “Landslide”, but I haven’t heard that one….do you have a recording you could point me at or send to me?

      • Landslide, that’s the one. I’m sorrry, I’m tired and misremembering. Its his cover of Landslide I like so much. Someone else did a so-so cover of Silver Spring but I can’t remember who it was at the moment.

    Ow. My brain hurts.

    🙂

  3. Somewhere, and if you are lucky I will never find it again, is a cassette tape of Jon Anderson and me trying to out highnote each other on the final chorus of “Afternoon Delight.” Can you say, “key of dogwhistle”? I knew you could….

  4. Also, is the “Shine” you are saying Dolly covered the one by Mike Oldfield and Jon Anderson? If so, that is something I’d love to hear.
