2020 Was The Year Of The Covers – The Five Best According To TURN UP THE VOLUME…

28 December 2020

With much time on their lockdown hands – not that they liked it – due to that awful virus countless artists covered countless other artists. Here are the 5 best Turn Up The Volume heard while being shackled to his home…

– BORN TO RUN – by RICH GIRLS

A gloomy version of the Bruce Springsteen classic.

Rich girl Luisa Black: “I wanted to bring the darkness of the song forward. That meant stripping away some of those freedom rock elements. Also, and I say this with all humility,
I never loved the middle eight in the original. I think it’s a better song without it.”

– STATE TROOPER – ALISON MOSSHART

Original by Bruce Springsteen – from his ghostly 1982 Nebraska LP

The charismatic The Kills amazon about her choice “One of my favorite
car songs. I f**king love “State Trooper”. I’m obsessed with that song. I just
can sit and sing it all day. I love how cinematic it is, I love it’s so visual.”

– KNOCKIN’ ON HEAVEN’S DOOR – TANYA DONELLY

Original by Bob Dylan – from the film soundtrack Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973)

Tanya about Bob: “I won’t wax on about Bob Dylan’s impact on my love for lyrics, but
the leaning reader in this poem pretty well describes how I have always listened to him.”

– DOLL PARTS – by MILEY CYRUS

Probably Hole‘s – hello Courtney – best song ever.
The live rendition of Miley Cyrus is pretty awesome too.

– Walls – by ANGEL OLSEN and HAND HABITS

If this 1996 Tom Petty pearl’s interpretation by these two magical nightingales
doesn’t touch your heart and soul, you need to see your lockdown therapist.
