And it never goes out

Three great versions I love for the excellent and much covered classic song from The Smiths:

Loquat - there is a light that never goes out
The Lucksmiths - there is a light that never goes out
Erlend Oye - Poor leno rmx / there is a light that never goes out

And well, for those of you who've never heard of Loquat, here's another good pop tune played in their usual sultry nostalgic style:

Loquat - swingseat chain

    Also check out the cover "the divine comedy" did for this song. Good stuff.
    Love the dancey erlend oye cover.

    Saint Etienne - Foxbase Alpha; Tiger Bay
    Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain; Wowee Zowee
    Sonic Youth - Sister; Daydream Nation; Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star
    Alex Chilton - His whole life...esp. Big Star - Holocaust (from Sister Lovers) and his too cool version of Volare.
    Also check out the Mojo Greatest Albums Of All Time book esp. for older stuff.And read everthing ever written by Aleister Crowley for good measure!

    Que gusto Kahlo, mi favorita por ahora es la de los Lucksmiths y bueno, la original por supuesto.

    Thanks for the recommendations Makrugaik :)

    Moka, if you get the chance, the now defunct band Braid has a great cover of this song also. If I get around to it, I'll send it your way.
