An Early Clue to the New Direction

From the Letterman Show (not sure exactly when), here's Elvis Costello and the divine Emmylous Harris with a lovely version of the Everly Brothers' oft-covered 1960 classic "Love Hurts."



A coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the reader who first divines the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Listomania.

Best break-up songs?

Or best rock-country duet pairing?

racymind said...

Best country crossover renditions -

Best male-female duets?



and why was the Nazareth concert I attended still the #1 worst on my list of bad concerts?

steves said...

Aw, heck...my brain hurts. I'll just say favorite remake and leave it at that.

steve simels said...

No, no, and no. And no. (Sorry, I lost count).

And racymind -- I feel your pain. Although you don't look old enough to have actually attended a Nazareth concert....

Best British/American pairing?

racymind said...

Nazareth toured sometime in the early 80's. I have no clue if it was the original group0 or if the first drummer exploded.

I just surfed one post down to realize you posted a clue earlier today. Otherwise I would have made different guesses...which I will make in a moment.

Very clever, and I may steal that for the future.

But no....

[putting on glasses] oh wait you said "1960 classic"...nevermind.

Rock & Roll cover version of a country song?

PS: Isn't Emmylou just about the most beautiful woman on the planet!!!

ROTP:

No, and yes.
:-)


I have to admit this one's tough...

let me think of a fair hint.

Okay, it's definitely about cover versions. Big help, huh?


Darn -- can't think of a clue that won't give it away.

virgotex said...

Until you said the cover versions hint I thought it was about RCA Studio B in Nashville- most of these people recorded there.

PS: Isn't Emmylou just about the most beautiful woman on the planet!!!

Yes, with the most beautiful voice. Angels pass out when they hear her sing.

steve simels said...

Okay...here's the only clue I can think of...

In the not too distant future...

Not that you know me personally, but I think this has to do with the cover band that dedicated a song to me and my finance at the time. The song, "Your Cheatin' Heart". Yes, we are still married.

Dave said...

With apologies to Sigmond, fiance, not finance-- though the two do seem to be somewhat related.
