Rhino’s Got You Covered: Twiggy, 10,000 Maniacs, Wilco, and Everything But The Girl
Itâs Wednesday, so it must be time to take another dip into the Rhino catalog and trot out a new quartet of cover songs that you may or may not have heard before. Letâs get started, shall we?
â¢ Twiggy, âWaterloo Sunsetâ (2011): Yes, that Twiggy. The one who came to fame as a model. Sheâs also a singer, has been for quite some time now, and she still continues to deliver some very lovely takes on classic tunes, including this Kinks klassik.
â¢ 10,000 Maniacs, âEveryday is Like Sundayâ (1992): Originally released as one of the additional tracks on the bandâs CANDY EVERYONE WANTS EP, along with covers of R.E.M.âs â(Donât Go Back To) Rockvilleâ and The Horse Fliesâ âSally Ann,â this Morrissey cover scored a bit of college radio airplay at the time. Somewhat unexpectedly, Natalie Merchant even popped up on The Late Show with David Letterman to perform it live.
â¢ Wilco, âWill You Love Me Tomorrowâ (1996): Recorded live for KCRW in 1996 while the band was in the midst of promoting the BEING THERE album, this Gerry Goffin / Carole King composition is a heartbreaker no matter whoâs doing it, but Jeff Tweedy definitely manages to instill it with a bit of extra angst.
â¢ Everything But The Girl, âTime After Timeâ (1992): Covering Cyndi Lauper in â92 was a bold move, since it didnât really qualify as retro yet, but Tracey Thornâs voice on the verse is moving, and when she harmonizes with Ben Watt for the chorus, itâll put a lump in your throat.
