Of course the definitive “Hallelujah” is k.d. lang’s. And I think both Prince and Sinead O’Connor absolutely sent “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
The Kennedy Center performances...
They dared to cover Stairway... and they fucking OWNED.
Nancy is a monster guitarist too...
fucking Barracuda... that damned gallop will make your forearm burn about a minute into it.
I first heard them in 85 when the self-titled album came out... Then Bad Animals... I love some of the tracks on those albums... but then I found that back catalog... jesus.
They influenced so much, but never really got full credit for that... we all know why, yet they are undeniable.
I would rather listen to them play Led Zeppelin covers (not to mention their own catalog) than anything else from the 70's.
@thegibson The only Heart song I knew was “All I Wanna Do” for the longest time, then I found “Barracuda” and never looked back.
Here's another reason... I have a custom guitar made by a company... to spec... because of Nancy.
@thegibson Motherfucker you know if I say it, it’s gonna be good. Stuff it in your earholes and thank me later.
My soul came back.
It had left when I listened to Rammstein's cover of "Stripped" by Depeche Mode.
