Tune du Jour: “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” – Bob Dylan
Cover Song Competition: Echo & The Bunnymen vs. Kelly Hogan
Hey! Mr Broccoli Man, play a song for me ...

Hey! Mr Broccoli Man, play a song for me …


In deference to the recent anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy I chose the greatest song John Lennon ever penned to launch Cover Me Impressed. Needless to say it is beyond disheartening

The Original


Bob Dylan:


The Cover Songs Competition


Echo & The Bunnymen vs. Kelly Hogan


Echo & The Bunnymen:

Kelly Hogan:

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.


Votes can be cast up to seven days from the day and time of the original post.

Disclaimer: Votes cast from Florida may or may not be counted.

    Neither version moved me tremendously. But Echo is a long-time sentimental favorite. So I’m going with them

    Well I never fully “got” Echo & The Bunnyboys and have long considered Kelly Hogan to be a Goddess who graciously lavishes us with ethereal euphony. Her voice makes my heart go a pitter-patter and catapults me a-swooning to heights only Icarus could conceive. Yet, I’m inconsolably chapfallen in this piece. Kelly Hogan and It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue should have been manna from the heavens. Instead, it only serves to remind us just how cruel the Gods (and obviously Goddesses as well) can be!

    Begrudgingly, Echo …
