To counteract our Friday the 13th post, here is a lovely cover of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven from Katie Melua

Some songs totally change when they are recorded acoustically, or more slowly or both. Subtler melodies get revealed, the nuances of the harmonies are brought forward. What was a rock song becomes a lovely ballad. Sublime . . .

    I’ve heard this on XM 51 – The Coffee House. She does a great job on a great song.
