Thread Name: Shouldn't have been covered (songs)
Subject: RE: BS: Shouldn't have been covered
I mentioned "Fairytale of New York" much earlier in this thread. Well, I've now heard another cover of this song, Christy Moore's, and Christy's a marvelous singer and all, but his interpretation just butchers the soul of this song right out of it. It think it almost has to be a duet, for one thing.

Accept no substitutes.

And while I'm on the subject of Christy Moore:

Christy Moore singing "Raggle, Taggle Gypsy" with Planxty: incredible Christy Moore solo version of same, with synth and drum track: *shudder*
