Talk:I Was Dancing In The Lesbian Bar
Cover Me Bad
The Giants have a pretty good record on cover versions. Lady is a Tramp; One more parade; Savoy Truffle; Havelina; Through being Cool being great examples. The problem with covers is that do you replicate or innovate? The former is easy, the later very difficult. I was dancing in the lesbian bar is a perfectly good cover version, but, it's not as good as the original (which crucially was not Jonathan's best work anyway). So, unfortunately it's a song you listen too once and then that's it. Not a patch on Savoy Truffle where Linnell's innovative slacker delivery and slower tempo turns a White Album filler into a killer!
Having bought the 52 weeks I'm disturbed by two things. 1) That I've only bothered to download 3 songs thus far, as the quality has been so variable 2) That I wasted my money when they're going straight onto Spotify. Flans. What would Taylor Swift do? That's all I'm saying. (Mr Tuck)
