Open the Door, Richard
Quite a bit of support on the mothership this week for Richard Thompson's 'Oops, I Did It Again'...it's unlikely all right, but in a way it'd be a shame if he gets zedded for that, since he's written so many terrific songs of his own.
Here are cover versions of some of them, though they're not that unlikely I suppose (except the Elvis Costello, maybe).
Warning: these songs are not too cheerful.
Calvary Cross - Tortoise and Bonnie Prince Billy
Albion Sunrise - Albion Country Band
God Loves A Drunk - Norma Waterson
Mrs Rita - June Tabor
1952 Vincent Black Lightning - Mammals
Never Again - Shirley Collins
Dimming Of The Day - Any Trouble
Has He Got A Friend For Me? - Debra Cowan
The Great Valerio - Maggie Holland
End Of The Rainbow - Elvis Costello
The Madness Of Love - Adams, French, Kaiser, West
