How to Do a Cover Version (That Summer Feeling #20 – #21)

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.

So, and with thanks to Alex G, first up here’s Lily Allen, who did a version for a French mobile phone network advert (I think) which doesn’t seem to have ever had an official release here in the UK, hence this awful sleeve I found online:

Lily Allen – Mr Blue Sky

Further thanks to julianbadenoch for letting me know about this:

Joe Brown – Mr Blue Sky

Joe will be featuring in a future post I have lined up, so I won’t talk about him now, but I have to say, that’s bloody good, isn’t it? It really captures the happy-go-lucky essence not just of the record, but of Joe himself.

Dad – one for you to learn?

More soon.
