I cam across the Fiery Furnaces' cover of The Beatles' Norwegian Wood on Marathonpacks the other day. And it made me think of the other versions of that songs I have. Well, the two versions I have. I'm not really convinced by the Furnaces' one (but I'll give it a few more spins before deciding for sure), but the other two are pretty good. One is an instrumental dub reggae version by Dub Specialist, from the ace Studio One Soul 2 compilation. The other is by the soon-to-return (hopefully) Cornershop and sung in Tjinder Singh's native Hindi. Nice. And for good measure, the original by four blokes from Liverpool.
