I'll Be Your Mirror


Sometimes I think it is hip to pay tribute to artists and re-recording their songs. Many of them failed because you can't beat the originals recorded decades ago. But there are less tributes that celebrates a great album. This happened a few days ago when the songs of Velvet Undergrounds first album was re-recorded. Different artists from old heroes and young musicians made this tribute worth to listen because their interpretation spreads from similar to the old sound to a very new interpretation of those classic songs. I don't like every of this cover versions but some are really worth to give them a listen because they included them to their very own sound. Anyway, it is a good reason to listen to the fantastic originals once again.

Stipe's version of Sunday Morning isn't going to change the world, but it is an interesting take that's warm and comforting. The Black Angel's Death Song was written for Fontaines DC 55 years early! They really couldn't make a mess of it.

Robster is spot on. I don't think I want to hear anyone else ever record Black Angel's Death Song!
