I've never even heard that Stones song, Judy, surprised it wasn't more popular.
That's such a great Clash cover of the classic Toots & the Maytals song, Bryan!
Child of the Moon is often overlooked. It was the flip side of Jumping Jack Flash.
Judy, i'm sure you like this one. I think it's an incredible cover of a great song.
You've really been on a roll with a GREAT bunch of videos, Bryan! Every one is a treat to hear.
I had just heard a few songs from the Fiery Furnaces, not including this one. It's a fine reworking of the old blues tune, and it's an obscure one I'd never heard, either.
I hadn't heard of Porter Hall Tennessee. They're really good, and did the Jim Carrol song justice.
I knew about that Shatner album, but hadn't heard it. I love Common People, and that cover is surprisingly brillant.
The Lennon song is one I love, and the Elliott Smith cover is sweet.
The Radiohead is fantastic, and I had not seen that performance. Thanks for posting it!
From the first self-titled album The Grateful Dead, with Ron "Pigpen" McKernan on organ.
Canadian Folk-Rock singer Bonnie Dobson wrote this post-apocalyptic song, after seeing the film On the Beach. There are numerous covers of the song, which was made famous by The Grateful Dead.
Oh thanks Judy. I've never heard of Porter Hall Tennessee but the Jim Carroll cover (and maybe the artwork lol) caught my eye. I agree that the Shatner cover (with another singer) is surprisingly good. Gottal love the Shatner lol. There's also the whole Elliot Smith set on youtube.
And thanks for Morning Dew which i don't think i've heard though it seems to have influenced a lot of musicians. The lyrics are definitlely sadly relevant.
Such a beautiful song, imo. I wish it could have been recorded on a little better equipment, though i fully appreciate Daniel Johhston's ability to make such music with just a tape recorder in his basement.
