I stumbled across this rather fun cover of the Hall and Oates classic a while back on YouTube. It is taken from an album of Hall and Oates covers by Californian band The Bird and The Bee, which was released in 2010.
I am not sure it is quite as good as the moustache-tastic original but I really enjoyed it all the same.
The Bird and The Bee:
I am a little wary of over posting Van Morrison (especially having posted another live version of his only a few weeks ago), it is apparent that my regard for his work is probably higher than most. However, one of the things I have tried to achieve through this blog is to document my musical taste and the journeys it takes me on and over the past few weeks Van’s live work is something I have been mining heavily. He is the most masterful performer I know.
This is taken from a 1982 performance in Germany. The original track is taken from Beautiful Vision, which was released the same year. I especially love the trumpet and saxophone…
