Song for a Summer Sunday Morning

Readers and followers of this blog know that I am not a big fan of cover versions. But occasionally one pops up and makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. I like Kimbra, I think she is a very good musician and even though I still prefer Nina's very own take on this classic, Kimbra rises to the challenge and pulls it off beautifully. I hope you're having a good time off. I am enjoying mine. Thanks.

  9. A soft, sweet sound, which is just as pleasing on a Sunday evening (you know me) as on a Sunday morning.

    Happy holidays, CiL ....

  12. Occasionally there are some really amazing covers. I thought that cover of Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm was great.
