Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

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

Got home around midnight tonight after seeing The Waterboys (Amazing Show). I had not heard about Lou Reed’s exit until Mike Scott talked about his admiration for the man before launching into an obviously, hastily put-together tribute of VU songs, the rawness of which only served to endear. Anyway, I thought I had tomorrow’s blog “covered” before leaving for the show but now find myself putting together a late-night replacement Lou Reed blog. I don’t want to sound like a whiner but I do wish revered musicians would give me a day or two notice before checking out. It would sure make it a lot easier on an old, tired blogger …

Thanks Lou, this world was never meant for someone as beautiful as you.

(Could you imagine how disgusted Lou would be seeing a line that ridiculous offered up as an epithet?)

Somewhere Jonathan Richman is inconsolable …

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.
