Broccoli For Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles … Oh Yeah!

Compliments of Born Under A Bad Sign:

The Original

Guns N’ Roses:


The Cover Songs Competition


Luna vs. Sheryl Crow



Sheryl Crow:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.

    Amazing how Luna actually turned a song that I absolutely fucking HATE, into a really nice song. It was meant to be done slow and mellow, it seems. Which is why I fucking HATE Sheryl Crow’s version.

  2. RDubbs says:

    I was actually not familiar with this song but it appears to have been a big to-do. I have to agree with Plotty on this one. I’m not a fan of Guns N’ Roses and Sheryl Crow’s version is similar. Luna made wholesale changes to a song that desperately help.

    • Kerry Black says:

      I never liked Guns N’ Roses nor other music in this style. But I’m astonished that you were unfamiliar with this song. Wish I could say the same. This had to be one of the most often played rock songs of the post “Stairway To Heaven” era.

  3. Pete Black says:

    Shocked that Dubbs missed out on one of the most omnipresent songs of its era. Ol’ Sheryl is peppier than a squirrel on crack but Luna could do even a car commercial or an Archies song and make it sound good.
