    Her sister was the Bar-Keep at a small road side bar hAlf way out to Point Reyes
    She'd come in and do acapella often, for hours...

    She covers a tune like a magic marker (not really, she usually exposes a songs internal beauty . Like Show Biz Kids or I won’t grow up)

    Although I love me some RLJ, the song totally sucks.

    1. Nothing is lamer than when one band covers a band's theme song. I hope she does not do, "Hey Hey Were The Monkees", "Iron Maiden" or "We Are The Clash" next.

    2. The best part about the Real version is where the verse's tension is released "That's why they call me..." and then Ebm F# and blam on the Db power chord. It's the whole hook of the song, and she lazily misses it .

    I always though that FFDP did the worst version one could imagine, but she takes the cake.

    A pallet cleansing :

    Man, wait until your woman hears Rammstein "Rammstein"






    If RLJ covers that song, she shall be redeemed....

    Or the band Icehouse, doing the song Icehouse, from the album Icehouse

    It's in RLJ's key.

    I know what you’re saying. The BC hook hits you like whomp whomp WAAA! Baad companeey... so I get that. But I like her version too because it gives the song a cowboy western dusty feel. Nevertheless I understand where you’re coming from.

    Its amazing to me how wrong people get things. This song was inspired by this:

    71WwByoW41L._SY500_.jpg

    A western. I was born...six-gun in my hand. Kirke and Rodgers have different stories about it. I believe Kirke's.

    Rebel souls...deserters we are called.

    The film is about two guys who flee the draft during the Civil War.

    The entire song is inspired by that film.

    I like covers that are not exactly the same as the original. People here complain a lot about playing covers then complain when some does a cover that isn’t exactly like the original. I really enjoyed RLJ’s interpretation just as much as I enjoyed the classic original.
