I heard Patty Griffin's take on Springsteen's "Stolen Car", and as well as going out and buying the album, I remembered all other stunning covers I love.

"Only Love Can Break Your Heart" is still one of my all time favorite covers. Nice mix.

Interesting mix! I never heard that Billy Bragg tune but I'm sure it's a great version of Left Bank's SMASH-HIT!!

Hi Mr Set,

The Billy B track is a cover of (Don't) Walk Away Renee, close to my heart for some brilliant Johnny Marr guitar, and the lyric:
"And then it happened: she cut her hair and I stpped loving her".

Ah, great stuff...

Wow! Excellent list you've pulled together. I think you're inspiring me to try and create one of my own...
