The first in what I hope to make a regular feature: Single songs and covers I’ve heard lately, usually submitted to me, that you need to get your ears on. Pronto!
First, a simple, sweet cover of a classic Paul Simon song….
Next, one of the best pop songs of 2015 so far. I can’t wait to hear the whole album!
And this isn’t a cover, really, so much as biting off an idea Biggie had.
For a true cover of the Notorious B.I.G. cover, go no further than to Joseph Arthur…
The 10 Crack Commandments-Joseph Arthur (direct link to mp3)
And, finally, here’s Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires doing an extraordinary cover of Warren Zevon’s Mutineer. Rest In Peace, Warren. You’ll always be in my top 10.
