Some Covers For Saturday Part IV

Ok, I know I might have posted some of these before, but if you haven’t heard any of these before, I really think you ought to!

These tracks were on a 12″ single in 1992, and can now be found on a Nick cave compilation called Rarities…

Nick Cave and Shane MacGowan -‘What a wonderful World (Louis Armstrong cover).’ mp3

Nick Cave -‘Rainy Night In Soho (Pogues cover).’ mp3

Shane MacGowan -‘Lucy (Nick Cave cover).’ mp3

Dinosaur Jr’s take on the Cure’s classic as become legendary:

Dinosaur Jr -‘Just Like Heaven.’ mp3

This was a split 7″ single a couple of years back:

Franz Ferdinand -‘Get Up And Use Me (Fire Engines cover).’ mp3

Fire Engines -‘Jacqueline (Franz Ferdinand cover).’ mp3

These three songs are probably my favourite three cover versions of all time:

Schneider TM -‘The Light 3000 (Smiths cover).’ mp3 (AKA There Is A Light That Never Goes Out)

This Mortal Coil -‘Song To The Siren (Tim Buckley cover).’ mp3

Jeff Buckley -‘Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen cover).’ mp3

Three songs I haven’t posted before:

Siouxsie and the Banshees -‘This Wheel’s On Fire (Julie Driscoll and the Brian Auger trinity cover).’ mp3
