, Elbow are a great band!
Agreed, Elbow is fantastic
. I only know them through their albums, true, but they're incredible.
"The Loneliness of a Tower Crane Driver" reduced me to weeping the second time I heard it. The first time, I wasn't really listening. The second time, the moment of emotional climax at 3:43 was so breathtaking
that I turned into a gibbering wreck.
Oh, and some random covers I really enjoy.
An Australian Beatles cover band, The Beatnix, did a version of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," in the style of the Beatles' "I Want To Hold Your Hand." It is absolutely wild to hear "Stairway" as a two-minute pop song.
Sad Kermit. Pretty much anything he's done. "Hurt" is a thing of beauty.
