Leonard Cohen came in at 26. 


maggie’s farm cover

When we took the exam last week, this version of the song came to mind while I was filling out the lyric identification section. I literally sang the lyrics in Zach de la Rocha’s voice. This was actually the first Dylan song I ever heard. I was probably fifteen or sixteen at the time. I was also crazy about muse and RATM back then. Speaking of which, I also found a video back in high school of Muse covering the riff RATM guitarist Tom Morelo used for this song. Just thought I’d share.

Also, if you’ve read this far and are a bit confused..RATM=rage against the machine.


“Strike another match, go start anew”

This is a cover of “It’s all over now, Baby Blue” done by Van Morrison’s band Them. Of the covers I’ve listened to thus far, this has to be my favorite. I also read on some trivia account on twitter that listening to “sad” songs can help to lift one’s spirits. In this particular instance, I think that this claim is definitely true. Enjoy.
