    Sometimes songs get too close for comfort. By doing that, you put your song in the awkward position of trying to be more memorable than the original. Which is an almost impossible task. The only thing worse than copying someone's song (intentional or not) is plagiarizing yourself. I hate hearing a band I love copy their own songs. Modern country does that all the time. "That was a hit. Let's change it a little and..."
    Holy heavy reverb batman! Love this song.....yeah definitely in the same vein ...her chorus is different but yeah totally the same in the main verses...with a slightly different melody line and phrasing..

    She was interesting. But, music that hits me hard has a "pop" edge that makes you want to hum and rehear the song. She's a good violinist and singing at the same time is INCREDIBLE.

    I don't know if you've ever heard of Emilie Autumn. A strange person I worked with turned me on to her, and I fell in love. She had already played her east coast FLAG tour, and was ending on the west coast. So, I called her management and asked "Is this really the end of the tour? I live on the east coast." They said yes. So, I bought a ticket for her San Francisco show, took a flight out the night before. Had a great day in the area, then went to the show which was FABULOUS.


    About a month later they announced new dates and she played at Irving Plaza in NYC. I went to that show also. But, what the fuck? If someone says I have to fly across the country and you say yes, you better be sure. I'm happy I went. But, it's just wrong on every level of PR.

    Emilie is an excellent violinist. This is one of my favorite violin pieces. A Cure.



    Then there's the one and only Diamanda Galas. She and John Paul Jones put out a magnificent album The Sporting Life. I went to see them at Irving Plaza, and I was against the stage in front of Jones. He was playing complicated bass lines with his feet while playing the keyboards. Amazing show. Unfortunately, the following morning I took my mother to have eye surgery and she died at the Dr's office. On the way over she was commenting on how wonderful Sinead O'Connor's voice was on her Universal Mother CD. I wasn't close close with my mom. But, I still don't really listen to these CDs anymore. Bittova's vocals kind of reminded me of Irish music and Galas.

    Since violinists seem to be the theme of the day, I've got a buddy who is seriously into Lindsey Sterling, especially when she works with Evanescence. I had to admit they do some pretty darn good stuff.

    My favorite female fiddle player is Kendel Carson. I've heard her sing backup vocals while playing. Plays guitar too in the following video, but there's a string or 2 out of tune.



    Here she is with John Prine:

    I saw Evanescence at the Ritz on tour for their first album. I didn't really know them, and I remember nothing about the show. The place was packed. I've never given them a fair listen. I should. Her voice and the violinist are excellent on this.

    But, when she opened her mouth, this is what came to mind -



    I thank the Pretenders for this. I love O'Connor's version of "All Apologizes". Nirvana, Radiohead and Coldplay are three bands I absolutely despise. The original Radiohead Creep version has over 425 million views on youtube. I didn't make it through the first minute. The only credit I'll give Radiohead and Coldplay, I go to flea markets and thrift stores a lot, and I never see their CDs for sale. They have loyal fan bases that keep their music. Nirvana I could get for a quarter. I wouldn't give them a penny.

    Wow I gotta say I like all 3 of those bands...especially Nirvana...Just some really cool rock IMO but "like" is subjective...I like a very wide range of music.....

    Since you posted The Pretenders version of Creep..I have to shamelessly post the version I did about 8 years back with the guitarist from my late 70's prog rock band...unrehearsed..I'd never played the song in my life..also never had jammed with the drummer or bass before but they had played in a cover band with Dave ( guitarist) years earlier and came out to do this charity gig for a brother of ours that was on his way to the great gig in the sky...Anyway for unrehearsed I think we did a fine, much more rock version of the song.... If you REALLY hate the song just jump to 3 minutes and hear a guitar solo guaranteed to make you smile....

    I wasn't a big fan of Nirvana, a couple of songs were ok, but a steady diet wasn't for me. Coldplay has never been on any of my playlists. A fellow I worked with years ago was a HUGE fan. He gave me a CD for a listen. I gave it back.

    Evanescence does some pretty progressive stuff. I was always into Yes, Kansas, Crimson, etc, so I can appreciate their music. While I haven't bought any of their albums, I have listened to a few things via Youtube. Amy Lee can really sing. Unfortunately, she'll never beat out Beyonce, Cardi-B or Lizzo. That's a shame!

    I really dig Evanescence..got to see King Crimson @1972...awesome and @ 20 years later with Adrian Belew...Yes several times ...never seen Kansas but they are bad ass.... Back in the day we did a original called Can't you see who I am?...where we broke into that jamming part of 21st century Schizoid man ...It's a long ass song but jump to @ 7:30 thru 9 minutes and check it out pretty fun little jam for the local prog rock band....Me on the Roland synth and Hammond...
