On a lighter note, from ISIHAC (New Series just started!). 'Girlfriend in a Coma', to the tune of 'Tiptoe through the Tulips'.

Good version

I was listening to CCR's Willy And The Poor Boys the other day. First time I'd listened to it in ages.

I was listening to CCR's Greatest Hits CD the other day. Excellent but I realised it hasn't got Born On The Bayou on it.

You need to get John's version (or a copy of Bayou Country). That's a major omission .

I like The Sword's cover of ZZ Top's Cheap Sunglasses. They pretty much nail it.

this is a good version of nick caves "the mercy seat" but not a patch on the original.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

and from the sublime to the ridiculous.

So nearly blind
