A short muso post here. I’ve been listening to a particular couple of favourite Spotify tracks a bit recently: Kurt Elling’s cover of the Adrian Belew period King Crimson song, ‘Matte Kudasai’: (https://open.spotify.com/track/3eYxUakS4FvegXg8qUo8ro) and The Unthanks’ cover of another King Crimson track, ‘Starless’: (https://open.spotify.com/track/1SExxCS4BSeElY6bEZeADb).
So I found myself thinking about other unlikely, cross-genre covers and remembered, for a start, that Yes recorded a decidedly “out-there” version of Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘America’ on the Fragile album: (https://open.spotify.com/track/5jleoXgOf41HdLITE0Omu3). I’ve used the three track to kick off an, “Unlikely Cross-genre Covers” playlist on Spotify: (https://open.spotify.com/…/…/playlist/21BWLHTT7QfVD54ZWjmC9B).
More suggestions would be welcome.
