Cocteau Twins (This Mortal Coil) - Song to the Siren



I saw Robert Plant do this at Glastonbury as a tribute to John Entwistle who had recently died and just wow. I had to drag Zoe to the acoustic tent to see Robert Plant but she was in tears after that song.

Here is the guy who wrote and sang this originally



One of the few songs he has been bettered at but still a work of genius.

The Leningrad Cowboys & the Red Army Chorus - Gimme all your Lovin', incorporating the Russian national anthem, Handel's 'Hallelujah' chorus and Cossack dancers.

Top that. B)

I own the DVD of the entire gig, 'Total Balalaika Show'. The above is probably the highlight, but there's plenty of other great songs on there too.

This is one of my favourite bands of all time, Groundation, covering No Woman No Cry live. I think this is absolutely ace, given how many bands have annihilated this tune.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
