Aww, you guys.
Following on from my post yesterday about Mr Blue Sky, I received two comments nudging me in the direction of two more, very different, cover versions that I wasn’t aware of, both of which are so good, I felt obliged to seek them out and post them.

Further thanks to julianbadenoch for letting me know about this:

Dad – one for you to learn?
