Devoted To You ( Boudleaux Bryant Everly Brothers Cover ) 05.08.10

This was done as a Mother’s Day present for my Mom. My parents introduced me to The Everly Brothers. Their favourite ballad was (All You Have To Do Is) Dream, and while that song is a masterpiece in every way, Devoted To You was always my favourite Everly Brothers song. It’s hard to choose favourites […]

Over And Over ( Fleetwood Mac Christine McVie Cover ) 02.09.10

Christine McVie is a great pop songwriter. When will Warner/Reprise re-release the 1979 making-of Tusk documentary?

Rain ( The Cult Cover ) 10.06.09

The Cult‘s Love album from 1985 provided the soundtrack to my second year at Sheridan College. She Sells Sanctuary was the song we all danced to (at R.P.M., the space in Toronto that now houses The Guvernment), but Rain, Revolution, and Love were the really cool songs that core followers of this band knew were […]
