In terms of covers, this should be up there with Mr Cash’s verison of “Hurt”.

    Yah.  I don’t know if I’d put it in the Johnny Cash category, but it’s a damn fine cover. It’s certainly a testament to how well that song holds up to different intrepretations.  I really expected to not enjoy it, but I found the dirge feel oddly appropriate.

    Reminds me of the iron and wine cover of such great heights. The guy even looks like sam beam.

    I think he put soul into that tune. But why does andre3000 have to be used?

    Probably because the footage of Weddle isn’t so interesting in and of itself.  I liked that he sync’d it up to the video, as it let me see where and how he was changing the tempo.

    I am goddamned amazed at how well this translates.  It sounds like it was SUPPOSED to be this way.  Very very good.

    This would sit really well on a playlist next to The Gourds “Gin and Juice” and Dynamite Hack’s “Boyz in the Hood” covers.

    hmmm. . . I don’t know.  Not feeling it.  I won’t go into detail in fear of the electronic snowball fight that might ensue. . .

    I’m always a sucker for acoustic covers. Anyone know where to find a mp3 of this beauty?

  • LeatherSleeves
