what's that on?at the mo' it's John Cale - All my friends (the LCD Soundsystem tune)
no way the original is far better. the song doesn't suit his voice imho.'All Along The Watchto-'....nah...
Robert Wyatt does the definitive version of Elvis Costello's 'Shipbuilding' for me, Maneesh.
I can't believe somebody de-repped me for this!"Dogged work" by Manly Striving. Forget who did the original.
GOT IT OFF "MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC".... THAT SHOW IN THE STATES. FOUND IT ON THE NET SOMEWHERE. I THINK IT WAS SOMETHIN' TO DO WITH STEWOO.NET. PM ME AND I'LL SEND IT TO YA.Where did you get that?
that's weird coz Costello doesn't actually play on his version. He co-wrote it with Clive Langer as far as i know...Robert Wyatt's version isn't really a cover anyway, seeing as Costello plays on it and I think it was released before Costello's version appeared on Punch The Clock.
yeah, gorgeous stuff. you can actually vote for your favourite version, supposedly Suede and Tasmin Archer have also done a rendition:And Chet Baker trumpets on Costello's cut.
so is 'I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down'.class tune.Speaking of Elvis C - What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding is a bleedin' brilliant cover of Nick Lowe's tune.
I'm not too gone on some of his other covers, though 'Good Year for the Roses' is nice.
Radiohead do a rubbish cover of a half-assed EC song - 'I'll Wear It Proudly'.
