Rhoda Dakar: "Version Girl" covers album released; includes "Everyday Is Like Sunday" (May 26, 2023)

  • 1,261

A 12-song collection, the album features a diverse range of covers chosen by Rhoda, celebrating her love of Reggae, Ska and Rocksteady. Most of these songs have never before been given proper treatments in these incredibly versatile and timeless Jamaican genres.

"I wanted to go a little left field for this. There seemed no point in covering songs which already had perfectly good Reggae versions.

I think it also continues to demonstrate the amazing adaptability of these Jamaican genres!"

Everyday Is Like Sunday - Morrissey
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
Hangin' 'Round - Lou Reed

It was going well. They were laughing, joking. Morrissey, who had suggested the group give him a call if they were passing through his adopted home, even floated the possibility of The Thrills supporting him on tour. But then things suddenly took a turn when the band’s guitarist made the faux pas of asking the Smiths frontman if he might be open to becoming an honorary Thrill.

“We knew Morrissey liked our song ‘One Horse Town’. He had put the demo...
