I'll Be Back: Shawn Colvin

Here's a great cover that I first heard on Coverville's 6th Beatles special.Colvin really captures an aching note of longing in I'll Be Back. Here's a not so great live version and the original brilliant studio one (which starts at 4:55).

  1. Great cover! And I love your blog! What a great idea!

  2. The second one sounds nice. More honest and vulnerable than the Beatles version.

  3. Hey welcome to the academy Emma! Great to have you here.

    Rob - this is one of the few covers that I'd be tempted to say maybe better than the Beatles...
