Covered in Glory Day 4.5 – Listener requests!

Covered in Glory LogoThis theme is proving to be quite the debating point over on Facebook where I post the links daily, so at the risk of sounding like a daytime DJ, here are some requests from the Facebook posse.

Rachel suggests’Take Me To The River’ by Talking Heads, which for my sins I did not even know was a cover version ( Al Green originally). Any excuse to post a clip from “Stop Making Sense’:


Sergio requests ‘Song To The Siren’ by This Mortal Coil, a cover of the Tim Buckley original


Howard nominates Robert Forster’s take on Dylan’s ‘Tell Me That It Isn’t True’:


Counting Crows version of Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi has been proposed by Mike:


And finally for now Springsteen’s Blinded by The Light, a hit for by Mannfred Mann’s Earth Band:

Keep ’em coming listeners…

  1. No sure Talking Heads do Al Green’s song any favours but a big ask to cover such an iconic soul voice. ‘Song To The Siren’ is one of THE great covers and one I’ll now have to remove from my list for posting!
