    Life’ll kill you. That’s the point, no one lives forever it’s how the system’s built. It isn’t a bug it’s a feature. Does anyone seriously want to see Madonna’s world tour when she’s 500 years old.

    So Steve Winwood’s version was a cover. I have learned something new. Thanks!

  • Booklegger says:

    Actually, Winwood wrote it, and Zevon is covering here.

    Actually, I’ll take the hit on the lack of research. Generally, when I hear a slower-paced version of a song I’m familiar with I assume that it’s the original (For example, Simon and Garfunkle’s “Scarborough Fair” vs. Queensryche’s version of it).

    It took me a couple of years to realize that Linda Ronstadt’s “Poor Poor Pitiful Me” wass actually a cover of an original by Zevon. (And Ronstadt sang backup vocals on it.) I like them both, but I prefer Zevon’s version:
     
    I met a girl at the Rainbow Bar
    She asked me if I’d beat her.
    She took me back to the Hyatt House
    … I don’t want to talk about it.
