An ex punk covering The Velvets isn't the same thing though.

I don't know if you're young-ish or barmaid-ish enough to get away with that.

Taylor Swift has released a "stripped-down, banjo-slathered rendition of the soul classic" 'September', by Earth, Wind and Fire.

Can't find any YouTube vids that actually work, but there's a link to Spotify in this Spin piece:

I just heard the last couple of minutes of this again, and it's seriously awful. I don't think I even noticed at the time. Springsteen comes in about five minutes in and it sounds like he's throwing up. And it just goes on and on and on and on...

That Taylor Swift YouTube clip didn't last long. Maybe YouTube has developed a social conscience and deleted it for the greater good.

We were in a food hall in Seville where some Spanish couple were holding their phones in the air trying unsuccessfully to Shazam this. I was able to tell them the song title and they bought us both a drink for our efforts, therefore I cannot bring myself to hate it, saccharine though it is.

Ah yeah, they're always bad. But this is a special kind of bad.

And why does it need to be over 7 minutes long? just to stuff in all those egos?

Bob kind of lifts it, somehow. It's funny to hear his whine through all the overproduced muso shit. A bit of character, a bit of fun even (God forbid!)

But Bruce? Fucking hell it's about as overwrought as I've ever heard him. And that's saying something.

I'm amazed they're still going.

I’m not clicking that but I’m positive that it isn’t even the worst Manics song.

Copehead will be along in a minute to tell us they are the greatest British band of the last 30 years, James Dean Bradfield is a guitar God and Nicky Wire is the Noam Chomsky of Rock.

What a world
