AN INDIE-DANCE TUNE FROM THE PEN OF LEONARD COHEN

R-1334326-1299092569

No….your ears do not deceive you.  But it is courtesy of a cover version:-

mp3 : Ian McCulloch – Lover Lover Lover

Bearing absolutely no resemblance whatsoever to the 1974 original, Mac the Mouth gives us something we can all shake our snake hips to.

Released back in 1992, it got as high as #47 in the singles chart and was the highest placed of the eight singles Mac released as a solo artist.  The cupboard contains the 12″ version which was produced by Henry Priestman (ex It’s Immaterial and The Christians) and mixed by Mark Stent (who went on to find huge fame and fortune working with Oasis) :-

mp3 : Ian McCulloch : Lover, Lover, Lover (Indian Dawn Remix)

I suppose,  for the sake of completeness, I should also shove up the b-sides:-

mp3 : Ian McCulloch : White Hotel (acoustic version)
mp3 : Ian McCulloch : Vibor Blue (acoustic version)
mp3 : Ian McCulloch : The Ground Below

The first of the acoustic numbers is a version of a song on his 1989 LP Candleland while the second is a version of one than can be found on Mysterio from 1992.

Enjoy.

  1. I also had this. Always thought it was a very decent cover. He also did versions of ‘Suzanne’ and ‘Hey That’s No Way To Say Goodbye’, both of which are also worth hearing.

  2. Good one JC! Mac is a huge Cohen fan, he can go on and on, and of course has, about Cohen. I would love him to do a version of Master Song, which is my favorite Cohen song. Too bad he didn’t get to Halleluljah before Jeff Buckley…
