Bride of Covers Week (Part 4): Special "Heavy Metal Meets Folk-Rock and Then They All Go Out to the Pub For Dinner" Edition

From 1970, please enjoy The Move and their staggering cover of Tom Paxton's "Last Thing on My Mind."



Quite a reimagining of the song, I think; let's just say that it's usually performed in a gentler, more bucolic style. I'd give my right arm to know if the song's composer ever heard it.

Have a great weekend, everybody!!!

I think this is a wonderful example of how a great song can survive massive reimaginings. Holy crap, that 2 minute guitar solo starting at 4:00! I love the original and this is pretty fun too.

As KJX said, "that guitar solo!" A brilliant reworking of Paxton, yes it is.
