18 September 2012 - Hole - Closer

My quest for a cover today didn't start with Hole, even though Courtney Love's raspy snarl lends itself to covers.  However, I stumbled upon this fantastic cover, recorded live in 2010, of a big Nine Inch Nails hit.  It's interesting to hear a female perspective on the song - it sounds completely different.

I should add that I saw Hole live in 1995, when Courtney was still in obvious mourning over the death of her husband the year before.  They were awful.  This performance - so much better.
