my beloved crooner


quem está na wired deste mês? chanmeuamor!

It’s easy to sing somebody else’s song — but near impossible to do it well (Exhibit A: every karaoke bar from Topeka to Tokyo). Which is why we love Cat Power’s stripped-down take on classics like “New York, New York.” For fans of the soulful singer’s The Covers Record, this is a welcome return to the form, with 10 bluesy reimaginings of tunes by James Brown, Billie Holiday, and Bob Dylan, plus a redo of her own “Metal Heart” and the set’s only new original, “Song to Bobby.” True, there’s a long tradition of covering Dylan songs. But few have ever sounded this good.
