I know. I know. But I was inspired by DaveGYNWA and the phenomenon of Elvis impersonators doing covers.

Yeah. What I then realised is that there is an Elvis version. Interesting.
Are you seriously saying the shit Elvis version beats Liz Fraser? That's my question for you.
Nighty-night  :)

Not at all. I'm contrasting and comparing the original Tim Buckley version to the guy-pretending-to-be-Elvis-singing-other-dead-singers'-songs. He's got a whole album of them called Gravelands. ;)

possibly my favourite band name of all time. Was disappointed when they shortened it to just Fuzzbox.

I can heartily recommend Tori Amos' album entirely of covers, Strange Little Girl. As well as the title track, includes versions of I'm not in Love, Don't like Mondays and Happiness is a Warm Gun.
