Cover Songs: Train in Vain

My music taste runs pretty wide.  That’s probably a reason why I enjoy a good cover tune as much as I do.

Today, let’s take a look at the song, Train in Vain, made famous by the Clash.

There are a couple of good covers of this song.

Those are the ones by Annie Lennox & Dwight Yoakam.

Both are from dedicated cover song albums, Medusa and Under The Covers respectively.

In both cases, the artists are covering songs that influenced them and are not trying to replicate the sound of the original.

They are putting their own unique style on the song, and it is a better song for it.
