Ralph McTell's Streets Of London again - this time done rather beautifully by folk rock duet Blackmore's Night (Richie Blackmore from Rainbow)




And after that lovely version lets rather ruin it with a Danish version!

Or a Norwegian version

Or the obligatory Finland cover

Or maybe you would prefer Die Strassen von London?? :-rofl2

Another one from Leo at Frog Leap Studios. House of the Rising Sun - 55 years after Tha Animals took it into the charts!

Weezer seem to be good at doing covers. Here is Aha's 80s smash hit Take On Me - complete with rotoscoping :D

Stardate - 1989. Chris Rea has probably his best known hit The Road To Hell.

6 years later Tom Principato covers it with lots of guitar distorsion

I really dont know what to make of this one. Its Robbie William's new xmas tune - but it most definitely samples the Robinson Crusoe tv series theme from the 1960s!

Not really a keeper. Celebrating his Man Friday passed almost three weeks ago


Perhaps next year.

It was on TV a year or so after I was born
