Cat Power: Queen of Covers


The goodness just keeps on coming from the lovely Chan Marshall.

I had not heard this cover 'til Chad posted it today over at Everybody Cares, Everybody Understands (and I'll just assume it is his attempt at an April Fool's joke to post James Blunt covering the Pixies).

The fervor with which I love Cat Power's aching, smoldering versions of the songs she covers is unmatched. This is a total knockout:

The James Blunt was a joke...and a fantastic one at that! I've gotten a lot response to it. :)

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I'm really digging this cat power track, as well as the Counting Crows show. So thanks for all your great posts and have a good one.
