Marc Carroll vs. Girl In A Coma

space

Marc Carroll:

Interesting piano piece, hauntingly riffing “After The Gold Rush” in the background of the song.

Girl In A Coma:

For a girl supposedly in a coma, Nina Diaz can sure belt out a tune and kick out the jams!

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.
