“Do you love me babe?
What do you say?”
If I had the opportunity to put together a Southern California style holiday concert, perhaps held at the beach (it is Southern California), a small stage underneath the pier somewhere, I would want to ask each band participating to do their favorite cover song. At the end of the day, when the sun is down and the headlining act is near the end of their set, perhaps I would have everyone join on stage at the end and do some kind of sing-a-long, though I suppose that is a rock-n-roll festival cliche.
Some cliches are worth it, though.
I’d certainly invite Mr. Yorn, one of my favorites in terms of covers, especially when he takes on the Ramones, Bruce “the Boss” Springsteen, and The Smiths.
