Hanoi Rocks frontman covers the Pogues
Can't say I have ever heard that song. Really enjoyed it and liked the video. Thanks for posting.
It reminded me some of this
Such a great song. James Fearnley wrote how the song came to be in his book.
a song that has been badly covered by so many. a toss up between that and this for the worst:
the original is great - here you go:
Shane McGowan and Jem Finer wrote some of the best music through the 80s and 90s.
I sincerely hope that the ghost of Kirsty McColl haunts them to the end of their days. I've heard better pub singers.
song starts at 1:06
Thanks! Yeah, that was really great. Had not gotten into this band, possibly because I am slightly too old to have picked them up before I started my working career. But never too late.
This one sucked most of the life out of the original.
I did a cover of this last year and I have video. I'm reluctant to share though. It was fun! A challenge to sing it well and with the right spirit.
Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash is one of the best albums of the 80s regardless of genre. The one before and the one after are 95% as good.
I am a big fan of the Pogues and, maybe even more, of Hanoi Rocks, but I have to say that this doesn't really work for me. Not really bad, just no magic.
this song is getting a bit of stick over the use of the term 'faggot' in the lyrics. this never got so much as a raised eyebrow when the song first came out but now there are radio stations that won't play it.
