One of my favorite aspects of music, is when one artist covers another and puts their own spin on an already established song. Sometimes a song takes off in a direction that's entirely different than originally imagined.
To pay homage to some of the great covers out there, I now proclaim every Thursday as "Cover Thursday" (at least on this blog). To kick us off, I picked a cover that blew me away the first time I saw it live! Here's Glen Hansard (The Swell Season, The Frames) covering Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks."
