Blog de Musique

This is a music blog. Different kinds of music. And commentary on said music. Most of the files uploaded will be AAC files (because I'm an Apple guy) so you best have iTunes to play them. Sorry if you don't. (If any links are dead, leave a comment and I'll reupload.)

I buy way too much music for my own good and then waste my time talking about what music I've bought on my blog.

Ride "Eight Miles High"

Here is a cover by shoegazing legends, Ride. It's their cover of The Byrds' Eight Miles High. It was originally released on a UK compilation called Through The Looking Glass: 1966 released by Imaginary Records, which featured a bunch of small UK bands cover songs from 1966. Ride was the only band that was of any worth on the comp.

The funny thing about this cover version is that it must have been hastily done because there's an entire verse missing from the original. There's an interview with Andy Bell somewhere where he mentions that they were aware of it too. At some point, I'll get to posting some of Ride's other covers including their cover of The Velvet Underground's European Son.
