Best Cover of the Year


There's not really much more to be said about this cover that isn't said in the performance itself, but I'll throw my vote behind it as the best cover of the year...possibly even of the last few. You can read more about the choir and download the single here.

Cheers to Josh and Pernell for the link.

did you cry? or weep? or get misty-eyed? or have any other salty excretions from any iris related body parts?

Oh crap james, I thinnnk I've ruinnnned my keyboard...the nnnn is sticking because that's where all the tears rannn! Give me a minnute....
Ok - better now. WOW - you know what really hit me with that. One of my favourite little rascals in the world is back in hospital, sick as a dog with his Cystic Fibrosis. He uses the same oxygen delivery system as this man. And I just kept thinking how much I'd like my little friend to grow to be a cool old guy - but he won't. Like most of us, he can't be fixed. And he's a little scared. But he keeps going as best he can: laughing, pushing people's buttons, messing with the medical residents...he'd crack up watching old people sing Cold play.
I hope I can keep going with as much courage, class and "chutzpah" as these folks - old or young.
