Lovely, thanks for this and the rest of the calendar. It's all been really enjoyable (after I discovered it on the 13th!)

I'm wondering if this is the Otis Redding/Aretha Franklin track or that song by Erasure. I'll find out later.

Theoretical Girl said...

Ooo. I wouldn't dare cover a song already performed by Aretha! So glad you like it Cornelius. xx

Firstly, I just had a look at my comment to yesterdays post. I would like to apologise for its length (and for going on about my travel problems), it's what happens, I suppose, when staved of the internet for about 8 days.
Any way, my first thought after reading the title was also Aretha Franklin, though I do know the song you sang, how ever I, yet again, have can't remember who sang it. At it's annoying me this time as I know I should know it.
Again sung beautifully :)
well, role on day 22 :)

i think this one might be my favorite cover. this is just...perfection. thank you.

Eleanor said...

I prayed it was Erasure and indeed it was. The Innocents is one of my favourite albums of all time and my heart literally exploded when I found you had covered A Little Respect.

Much love to you Amy xx

This was just posted to the Erasure Newsletter (the band's official newsletter). So you may get quite a few more hits now.
