Covers theme last night, travelling with a twist next week

Last night (Wednesday 23/01/2013) on a mixed bag we played cover songs, including a version of Band of Horse's "No-one's gonna love you" by opera singer Renee Fleming from her album of "Indie" songs called Dark Hope; Rufus Wainwright's version of the Beatles "Across the Universe"; and Jimi Hendrix and his cover of The Leaves song, "Hey Joe".
We also heard local musician Daniel Champagne's cover version of Don McLean's "Vincent" from his Real Live album.
I'm not sure if it counts as a cover song, but we did hear a different version of "You're so vain" by Carly Simon from her album Never Been Gone.  Eva Cassidy (may she rest in peace) has covered just about everyone's tunes.  One of my favourites is her version of Sting's "Fields of Gold".
Blondie's cover of The Nerve's "Hangin' on the Telephone", Jeff Buckley's version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", Todd Rundgren's take on Robert Johnson's Crossroad Blues were also given a spin.
We played a couple of Cold Chisel covers including The Waif's version of Four Walls, and Sarah Blasko's fabulous cover of Flame Trees.
Next week our theme is "Travelling with a twist!!"
