Mate at work just shared a playlist with me, featuring this. Usually not a fan of Bowie covers*, but this one is pretty darn decent.

 

 

*Yes, I do like Man Who Sold the World. Kurt was a god.

I think most will have heard this but still worthy of inclusion here just in case it escaped you...

Tom Waits doesn't often do covers, but when he does...

You know that cover of "Somewhere" by Tom Waits horrifies some non-musical types, like my sister-in-law. She's the type who rarely buys or listens to music but claims to love Opera and Classical Music but in fact couldn't name you anything but Nessum Dorma and a couple of tunes from Les Miserables.

I played that version by Tom Waits and of course she was mortally offended by it. It's a fucking brilliant rendition, a heartfelt, moving version that will be realised as such but the true music lover...

Let's here it again. wink

I rather enjoyed that, Balti Stench. Obviously it would have to go a very long way to match the original by Little Marti and his Wet Boys*, but it wasn't bad at all.

 

* Fear not, I do know that it's originally by Reg and the boys - Swindon's finest.
