Bye Bye Love. See CSNY play it here. Peter Frampton wrote the song in , but who can resist the alternative rock version by Dinosaur Jr? Of course, everyone knows that the Beach Boys wrote and recorded "California Girls" in , but David Lee Roth's version took it straight to Mary J. Though it's officially a compilation of samples, the song received an honorary spot on our list of unexpected covers.
In fact, The Verve eventually handed over all of the songwriting royalties for "Bittersweet Symphony" to one former Stones manager who took the band to court. Soon after, a second manager followed suit. For all this trouble, the song fills the final slot of this list. Being part of Spring Awakening , it was such an iconic, incredible show that I found myself to be very picky in choosing which show it would be to bring me back to Broadway.
It has been really great to take on that role and feel in control of finding parts of myself to play that I think are challenging and worthy and interesting. You have a couple of live shows coming up in support of this album in December. What can fans expect to see? I tell personal stories, we laugh, we reminisce, and we sing great songs along the way and everyone always ends up singing along.

I can't think of anyone who has captured the pain of a love turned to ashes more beautifully and tragically than Leonard Cohen in "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye. And the phrases I've never forgotten? Hair upon a pillow "like a sleepy golden storm. The rumbling guitar strings that carry us through "The Partisan" end with a different lyric in Cohen's cover than in the original.
In fact, most references to the time and place in which the song drew its inspiration are erased; he cut the details about the French Resistance and German occupiers.
The new subject is a singer who arrives to us without a nation; the final lyric describes not a dutiful French fighter who disappears into shadows to serve in loyal silence but a protester who lives in the public eye to fight oppression another day. It is strange that a song whose lyrics are stripped of their original context has more resonance afterward. But it is so with Cohen's "Partisan. A fight once had for freedom is a fight that lives on, and no country or military uniform is required to wage it.
With its soft, cyclical melody and haunting backing vocals, the song captures loneliness and desolation in the form of a late-night letter. The lyrics are essentially a time capsule for when Cohen lived in Manhattan.
And best of all, the singer really did have a blue raincoat. It was a Burberry coat that was lost forever when it was stolen from his ex-lover Marianne's loft in New York. Perhaps the raincoat thief is out there somewhere. Please return it to Cohen's family, you thieving bastard. The lyrics are bleak as hell. The vocal intensity is outright inimitable."Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose. That'll Be The DayBuddy Holly Buddy Holly got the title for his.
