Cover Versus Original: The Smiths' Last Night I Dreamt
It took me a while to get into The Smiths, but now after years of listening to them nonstop I love them. Initially, I was a big fan of the earlier and more Rockabilly-influenced Morrissey stuff. (Many of his early b-sides are the best solo material he's released.) The other night a friend sent me this string version of Last Night I Dreamt and I decided to pull out the original as well as the Low version from a few years ago. Which is better? Doesn't matter -- it's a solid song.
