I love bluegrass and I love a good cover
Nirvana has been slowly releasing remastered and unedited versions of songs from Unplugged (as well as some unreleased rehearsals). It's bringing back some strange memories for me.
The original is one of my favorite Bonnie "Prince" Billy songs. Start 49 seconds in to avoid a few f-bombs in his banter.
Sounds like he bowdlerized these lyrics:
"Looks like Like so many seagulls / Like so many hawks
Like so many thrushes / And so many cocks
Well a swallow will tell you ..."
Replacing "cocks" with "storks". Which is a bummer, because that's highlight of Oldham's songwriting right there.
And if your stage banter is in cursive, why bother cleaning up the lyrics?
Easily my favorite Madonna song. Nice cover by a band I’ve never heard of.
