I heard some crap band's remake of "Gone, Daddy, Gone" by The Violent Femmes as I was driving home today.

It was sad and pathetic and lacked the deliciously strained, almost sexually tortured vocals of the original.

It also lacked any real musical quality.

I must find some music pirates to comandeer me some downloads of the original.

I don't know a whole lot about the Femmes, but they supported Bob Dylan this summer and I saw them. They were pretty impressive. Very eclectic and cool.

Here you go my dear! ;)


Enjoy! It's quite quiet... sorry about the quality. :(

That disgusting piece of noise poloution is Gnarles Barkley and is the 2nd track on their mediocre album- St Elsewhere.
Which I stupidly bought because I like the other songs they had released.
Unfortunertly the rest of the albus stinks- and that is the biggest steaming load of the lot

Remakes can be so disturbing. I had to hear Sheryl Crow's remake of "The First Cut" (Rod Stewart) at least 10 times before I automatically hit the "skip" button- and I like her.
BTW, "Blister in the Sun" was the song I always sang to W to rock/dance when he was itty bitty- I guess I was just asking for it wasn't I?

There is an awesome updated version that they did for the Grosse Pointe Blank soundtrack. I don't have a link or anything, but it's worth looking for.

I see you already got one version from jandjsalmon -- if you are still looking for another version, I have one I can upload for you. :)
