Babe I’m Gonna Leave You was originally recorded by Joan Baez and released on her 1962 album Joan Baez in Concert, Part 1, but Led Zeppelin was the one who popularized the song in 1969 on his debut album.
Miley Cyrus is the latest artist to cover this famous song and renamed it Baby, I’m Gonna Leave You. I’ve got to hand it to her, I think she did a fantastic job… But Zeppelin killed it back in the day!
Have a look at Led’s live performance of the song in Denmark in 1969 and listen to Miley’s version of the song here.
The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus and Moby got together and did a cover of The Beatles “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”.
The original song by the Liverpudlian quartet came out in 1967 and was written by John Lennon. There was (and still is) a lot of controversy regarding what the initials of the song actually mean (LSD). Lennon denied that the song referred to the psychedelic drug and said that his son, Julian, inspired the song with a nursery school drawing he called “Lucy – in the sky with diamonds”. – Having a dad as free spirited, artistic, and creative as John, to be honest, I can believe that Julian did actually draw something and named it that…
The song Miley, Moby and The Flaming Lips covered lasts five minutes and twenty four seconds (yes, it took you forever to read how long the song lasts, and that’s exactly how long the video and song lasted for me, an eternity…)
The three artists that collaborated on this song are without doubt very talented people, but I personally disliked the video a lot, I think the chorus is WAY to saturated, it actually makes me heave… I understand that they wanted to do their own version of the song, and that’s great, but I think Santa Claus, a jelly brain, Miley swearing, the screen shot pic that’s at the top of this post and other stuff is way too much. The Beatles are and were a very funky band, naturally, this is just too much for my liking.
Have a look and listen to the trios cover, and please, let me know what you think!
