And In My Hour of Need,
I Truly Am Indeed,
Alone Again, Broccoli …

Singles are cover songs without a mate (or, for CMI’s purposes, an opponent). My dedicated team and I have diligently searched through our impeccable resources and have come to the conclusion that these particular songs were covered only once. Oh, in some instances, we may have found a cover by a pseudo-musician (think Billy Joel or, gulp, an unfortunate equivalent) but we’ll have none of that here at CMI! You may ask, why would a band cover a song so obscure that no other legitimate group is interested in also doing so? Well let me put it this way: How the hell should I know? But I do have a few of these rarities in my database and it is now part of your solemn responsibility to listen to them. No competition on this day. Rather unabashed reverence, reflection and repose. Enjoy …

    Love the Graham Parker version. Hate the Sonic Youth version.

    I love that MTV used to be set up in a way where an unknown artist could pretend to not know who Kim Deal is, while impersonating her, and then high five Thurston Moore.
