There's so many - I do like Vision's Stop Me If You Think..., Anthrax's London, Mojo Nixon's Girlfriend In A Coma, Supergrass' Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others, The Divine Comedy's There Is A Light...oh, there's so many.
I just downloaded your excellent collection, thank you! Now I'm listening to the Divine Comedy version of TILTNGO and.. Oh my, Neil Hannon's voice blows me away! I think it's about time I revisited that best of compilation I bought years ago.
You interviewed him? Interesting! For what magazine/show/or other did you do that?
I'm so surprised nobody here has mentioned I Know It's Over or The Boy With The Thorn In His Side by Jeff Buckley! Haven't you heard them, don't you like them, don't you like him? He's my favourite artist besides The Smiths, and it makes my heart flutter knowing that he liked them
I also like a little piece of There Is A Light That Never Goes Out that a great Swedish artist called Håkan Hellström did on an acoustic guitar on a tv show
It was when I was an AOL member. They had some kind of thing whereby fans could interview musicians. I'm going back about 6 or 7 years here. I said to Neil "I think you are a lyrical genius, second only to Morrissey", and he said "Guilty as charged". Nice man.
Um... I like his version of I Know It's Over but The Boy With The Thorn In His Side was a disappointment. It's too slow, it drags. I still love his angelic voice though. I'm sure he'll never be forgotten.
Who had the bright idea of moving my thread?Just heard it, which prompted this thread...
