Yes, I’m back again and this time it’s serious stuff. Is there a song that is your favourite cover version ever? For me I adore His Purple Highness, but have to concede that Sinead ‘Connor’s version of his song Nothing Compares 2 U, is just a little more compelling to listen to. And so my retro runner buddies, these are the covers I love best so far:-
Nothing compares 2 U - Sinead O’ Connor
Kiss - Art Of Noise/Tom Jones
Valerie - Ronson and Whitehouse
Monkey Man and Back to Black - Amy Winehouse
Tainted Love - Soft Cell
Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart - Almond and Pitney
I Only Want To Be With You - The Tourists
Please let me know the covers you love and they’ll go on our best covers ever playlist. As ever, the editor’s decision is final.
I can't wait to see what ideas you all have - this could be another 2 part playlist I think. If you name the tracks, I’ll create the playlist.
And the pic is the article about my run the year challenge in Runner’s World - thanks to you all on here and Mr Smooth, my story was considered interesting enough to be featured. More of you contributed to my sponsorship, as a result and thanks to helenwheels for her post on here to that effect. For that, every other post urging me on, and every penny donated by all you lovely people I have to say a big, big thank you to the C25K running family. Mummycav this will be you one day for sure.
p.s. Anyone else think I look weirdly shaped in this pic?
