17 April 2012 - Bettie Serveert - Lover I Don't Have To Love
I've been a pretty big Bettie Serveert fan since their 1992 debut Palomine came out (it's still one of my top 10 or 20 favorite records ever). While their own music is other-worldly (some will say dreamy...hell, I'll say it too), I always dug the songs they chose to cover (or albums, in the case of 1998's Bettie Serveert Plays Venus in Furs and Other Velvet Underground Songs). If I had to choose a favorite cover by them, I would have to go with their version of Sebadoh's Healthy Sick off of Palomine...but since I couldn't find a good video for it, we'll go with No. 2 -- their Bright Eyes cover off of 2004's Attagirl record.
