“Love Hurts” performed by Elvis Costello & Emmylou Harris

One of the most covered tunes in rock-n-roll, this was written by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant and originally recorded by the Everly Brothers. But you may know the Nazareth version best. Also covered by Cher, Juice Newton, Graham Parsons and Emmylou Harris, Roy Orbison, Sinead O’Connor, Jimmy Webb, and Rod Stewart. And that’s just a partial list of the artists who put this to vinyl, with bands like the Who and Pixies covering it live. Man, I’d love to have those two on my iPod.
