Borrowed Tunes

Cover songs = awesome. Neil Young = even more awesome. People covering Neil Young = Off the hiz-ook. The list of artists that have paid tribute to this man speaks for itself. If you've never listened, do yourself a favor and go get ahold of Decade or Harvest right now.

Ryan Adams (w/Gillian Welch)- Helpless

James Mercer(The Shins)- Harvest

Thom Yorke- After the Gold Rush

Smashing Pumpkins- Cinnamon Girl

The Constantines- Cinnamon Girl

Neko Case- Dreaming Man

Iron & Wine- Cowgirl In The Sand

Pearl Jam- Fuckin' Up

Pearl Jam- Harvest Moon

Pearl Jam (w/ Bono)- Rockin' In The Free World

Elliott Smith- Out On The Weekend

Hayden- Tell Me Why

Built To Spill- Cortez The Killer

Also, if anyone has this, or a recording of Akron/Family doing "For The Turnstiles" or any other good Neil covers, let me know.

Roxy Music does a rather romantic take of "Like A Hurricane." Still, it can't touch Neil's. I think Aquarium Drunkard did a post of The Bridge a few weeks ago. Somewhere, kicking around my car is a cassette copy. As Shakey himself might say, Don't be denied...

As for the aforementioned Drunkard blog, go to the 4/06 archive and scroll down to near the bottom of the page-4/01 post. As of 10:45pm today, they were still golden.
