Waiting Around To Die

Bildergebnis für townes van zandt

There are songs that can't be destroyed by covers. Many of them wrote Townes van Zandt who left us too early in 1997. He was one of the most important singer-songwriter in his time and the greatest gift he gave me, was taking me back to simple folk and country with his songs. This version is by Vancouver's The Be Good Tanyas and shows how gigantic this song is - even when he was played in a soft bluegrass version.

And here the song by the master himself:

I've never managed to see Heartworn Highways, but I have the soundtrack and it's incredible, as is most of Townes' stuff. Never heard The Be Good Tanyas version of this either - cheers!
