Friday Covers



Neal Young is a lousy singer. His tone is akin to cats fighting inside a metal trash can.  Somehow, his tone is perfect for the songs he writes.



Jewel has a beautiful voice, but this version just seems to lack the emotion Young puts into it, for me, it comes across as contrived.



Metal band Seether offers a straight-up take.  I rather like this one.

Perfect analysis.
Like Neil's music.
Living in the Free World.
Haven't listened in years.
Just wish his politics were better.
