It's Soul, Covered Up Part 7

For this 7th part of '(It's) Soul Covered (Up)' I again selected cover versions that sound at least as good or even better than the originals! Artists like Prince, the Stylistics and Bryan Ferry made some very nice covers themselves, but their self-penned songs were reinterpreted as well, as shown in this seventh edition. 'Is you love strong enough' from Bryan Ferry for instance was originally written for the movie 'Legend' (starring Tom Cruise) and the cover version that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross made was used for 'The girl with the dragon tattoo' (starring Daniel Craig) that came out last year.

Mayer Hawthorne (picture) visited my home town a couple of weeks ago. The track from Sugardaddy is taken from the new compilation album ‘LateNightTales: Music for pleasure', which is mixed by Tom Findlay (Groove Armada). More on covers and originals on Second Hand Songs and Originals. Enjoy!
