Great Composers Steal, Mediocre Composers Borrow

So as I noted yesterday, the single from The Searchers' fabulous 1979 comeback album...

...was the first cover song my 80s band The Floor Models learned as we were getting our act together.

Compare and Contrast: This song by my 90s band Gerry Devine and the Hi-Beams (aka The Flo Mos Mark II).

Doesn't sound remotely similar.

Nah. Not at all.

was sorting LP's last night before bed then dreamed that you were over and I was showing you my Searchers, Records, Shoes etc albums. I've been on this blog for years but never met you Steve. Kind of weird.
