So, only three choices left. I’ve still quite a few to choose from on my long list, even allowing for pre-emptions from others. There is one left that I am convinced Andy will choose, so am holding that back. Today I am going to be utterly predictable – given the name of the website – and go for the lead single from The The’s ‘Hanky Panky’ album of Hank Williams covers.
Having enjoyed their triumphant comeback at both the Brixton and Royal Albert Hall gigs it seems appropriate to go for ‘I Saw The Light’. With so much back catalogue of his own songs to choose from this did not make the final set list, but the imagery of Matt atop the Chrysler Building in NYC was used in the video wall behind the band. He certainly does not suffer from vertigo.
So only two choices left. I scare myself thinking about it.
You can catch up with our choices on previous days here.
I’m going to attempt my next entry on a mobile and an airport wi-Fi connection . After seeing the Manics at Meltdown last night perform a great cover of ‘in between days’ it reminded me that they too are fond of a cover version. This track is from the box labelled ‘songs you wouldn’t expect artists to cover’
