Billy Carter vs. Sonic Youth vs. Teenage Fan Club feat Donna Matthews
Billy Carter:

Well this is patently unfair but I could not decide whether I liked Billy Carter’s acoustic or electric version of Personality Crisis better. So I’m offering up both.

Acoustic:

Electric (Sound quality is not very good but the performance still shines!):

Sonic Youth:

Teenage Fan Club featuring Donna Matthews:

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?!!?

Singles Only

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

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 …
