Another week, another U2 cover. I thought I would hate it, but Cocker’s world-weary take has grown on me. (I still like Johnny Cash’s version better, though.)
It’s from Joe’s new studio album Heart & Soul. He also does R.E.M., McCartney, and John Lennon.
I can’t believe I just did a post about Joe Cocker. Stereogum’s fucking unpredictable like that. Watch out Internet!
DENNIS MILLER: So what’s been happenin’, man?
NORM MCDONALD: Oh, man, I dropped acid the other week.
DENNIS MILLER: Yeah.
NORM MCDONALD: That is bizarre stuff. Yeah, my cock started singing to me. Sounded like Joe Cocker.
