“Zombie” Jay Brannan (The Cranberries)

From an artist that I will definitely be learning more bout, here’s a minimalist Cranberries cover. Learn more about Jay at www.jaybrannan.com or find him on Facebook.

He’s put out an album of covers and also has a great body of original work, which you can find on iTunes.

“Go Your Own Way” The Cranberries (Fleetwood Mac)

For my wife, who is not feeling well today. I hope you dig it, Lil Bit.

“When the Stars Go Blue” The Corrs & Bono (Ryan Adams)

Yeah, I did the Corrs. Three beautiful Irish sisters who can sing pop songs while playing traditional instruments. Sorry, can’t forget the brother is OK too. Ryan Adams puts out so much material. One hopes that covers by the likes of Tim McGraw and these children of Ireland help turn people on to the rest of his catalog. Just stay away from “Jacksonville City Lights” unless you want to be really depressed.

“Behind Blue Eyes” The Chieftains w/ Roger Daltrey (The Who)

And yes, that is John Entwhistle on acoustic bass. In the mid-1990’s, I was very much into the Chieftains and Nanci Griffith but had only passing familiarity with The Who. Sad, huh? So the televised program “An Irish Evening” and the accompanying CD were staples that led to me really becoming a huge fan of the lads from Shepherd’s Bush, London.

“Chiquitita” from Sinead O’Connor (ABBA)

I’m not a closet ABBA fan. I’m an outright avid fanatic for the Swedish super troupers. In my college years, I nearly got kicked out of a pub for plunking enough quarters into the CD jukebox to play all their Greatest Hits in a row. Here’s Sinead, being as unpredictably awesome as ever.
