What are you listening to now?
Elvis in his full Las Vegas glory. Also love Joe South’s version.
And here we should also not forget the wisdom of Bill Connolly: “Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that who cares? He’s a mile away and you’ve got his shoes”.
Ryan’s Nesbraka. It is not great.
reason to believe is it for me. otherwise. it sucks.
It sounds like a college project, surprised he got the permission to release it really. I honestly think I could do as good a job…
let’s hear it!!!
he murdered atlantic city.
Partly agree. “Open All Night” gives the original a run for its money, as I see it. Otherwise, it is pointless.
EDIT: Perhaps “toss off” is a better characterization than “pointless” (too reductive).
When I get chance I’ll try to put one down, got a gig this week so no chance at the moment
that’d be sweet!
Let’s be clear here though, I think I can match Ryan maybe, not the originals
This was the best tribute to Nebraska ever:
There are several great covers of Atlantic City, but the one by Dawn Landes is probably my favorite. It’s almost another song when it’s sung by a woman.
Greensky Bluegrass does an excellent cover of Atlantic City. Here is a video of them doing Merle Haggerd’s Sing Me Back Home from the show I was at a few weeks ago at one of their homecoming shows at the State Theater in Kalamazoo.
it’s this one or bust:
I can’t believe that we’re that out of sync here. Maybe we need to go to couples counseling.
In terms of an incredible WTF moment, I will say that when Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle played Atlantic City as an encore together back in 2009, it was pretty hard to beat for me. But I do like Dawn Landes’s version.
