The contributions on this set are quite brilliant - I just spent an hour listening to one after the other! Thank you all.Applause Applause

I was 'surfing' through youTube, looking for a version of this song I heard years ago, but don't know by whom - then I found these two versions that struck me:
Evangelion
Deep purple

Wyrd bið ful aræd - bull!

That is "original", Elaine Paige singing. The clip is from the movie made in a performance in London Adelphi Theatre, 1998. The musical premièred in New London theatre on 11 May 1981.

There was trouble initially as Judi Dench, cast in the role of Grizabella, snapped her achilles tendon during rehearsals prior to the London opening. The role of Grizabella was subsequently taken over by Elaine Paige, who only had 3 days of rehearsal before beginning previews. The role was beefed up for Paige and the song "Memory" (originally to be sung by Geraldine Gardner in the role of the red cat Bombalurina) was given to Paige.

I'm a classical nut, but Rebekah del Rio's version of 'Crying' - Llorando (sung a-cappella in Spanish) send shivers up my spine.
It is used in David Lynch's 'Mulholland Drive'

Thanks, JJ. I'll look up Judi Dench when I have better net connection.

*edit* My first post made it look like they're a couple.

Hi Marissa,one day I woke up and saw a light in the darkness of my teenage crush on Bono Vox... that was the same day he started acting as the new Messiah (but with tons of money in his temple). Besides, I've eventually understood that the Edge is not the greatest guitarist of ever. They've been singing the same songs for years, The Edge doesn't admit he's bald and Larry Mullen clearly uses tons of botox.


Here's a joke for you then:
Q: What's the difference between Bono & God?
A: God doesnt walk around Glastonbury Festival thinking he's Bono.

I think therefore I think I am

Kingston Trio is much better, in both voices and playing an instrument, for me.

I am surprised nobody has mentioned Joe Cocker, one of the best performers of cover songs.

She Came In Through the Bathroom Window (Beatles)
Just Like A Woman (Bob Dylan)

or Tom Rush's version of The Circle Game (Joni Mitchell)

Xavier Rudd's version of The Wind Cried Mary (Jimi Hendrix)

Superstition by Beck, Bogert & Appice




quote: Jeff Beck was present in the studio when Wonder wrote the track. In fact, it all started with a drumbeat Beck came up with while noodling around between takes in the studio where he’d been asked to join Stevie Wonder during the sessions for what became 1972’s Talking Book album.
