A bustle in your hedgerow

I can't decide if it's really great that Dolly Parton covers "Stairway to Heaven" or, you know, disconcertingly weird....

no, but do you hate me for really liking mindy smith's cover of "jolene"??

One vote for "disconcertingly weird"; I would even go as far as "just plain wrong".

Aimee, she sang that when she opened for Nickel Creek in Seattle, and it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck; scary-good.

I vote for "really great" but do hope she won't cover "Dy'er Mak'er" next.

Or "Kashmir!"

I'm alarmed now!

It's a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad thing, Paul. As bad as Whitney covering Dolly's delicate little diddy: And I will always love you. The difference between those 2 versions is night and day, baby.

Are you familiar with Dread Zeppelin?

I am familiar, at least generally so, with Dread Zeppelin. So conceptually strange as to be perfect....
