Cover version of the month #47
Nina Simone and Richie Havens covers The Beatles
One day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go and see all those dopey accountants was wonderful and I walked round the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote Here Comes The Sun.
Both Simone appreciate the perfection of the original but add their own little magic to the song. I love them both, but in this case, the original is my favourite.
