Song To the Siren by Tim Buckley

 

Covered originally by Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins for Ivo Watts-Russell's 4AD project This Mortal Coil. And covered several more times since. The versions by The Czars and Dead Can Dance are particularly good.

 

 

On a related note, this unfinished duet between Jeff Buckley (Tim's son) and Elizabeth Fraser is well worth a listen

Halloween, Alaska completely reinvents LL Cool J's rap song "I Can't Live Without My Radio", giving it a melody and downtempo delivery. The whole album is pretty good, BTW. Recommended for fans of The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout.

In 1965, Jackson C. Frank released his debut self-titled album. The album was produced by Paul Simon and contained what would be his most well-known song "Blues Run the Game"

 

 

Later in 1965, Simon and Garfunkel recorded their own version as part of the Sounds of Silence session. The song remained unreleased until the mid-90s when it appeared on the "Old Friends" compilation. It was later included as a bonus track on a reissue of "Sounds of Silence".

 

 

A few years later, Nick Drake recorded a version which was released well after his death on "Family Tree", along with three other Jackson C. Frank covers.

 

 

In 2008, Alela Diane recorded a fantastic version as part of her Headless Heroes cover project.

 

 

Other notable versions are performed by

 

Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes) with White Antelope
