28 May 2013 - Kasey Chambers - Luka

What happens when an Australian national treasure covers an iconic song?  You get a twangy and faithful cover of a Suzanne Vega classic.  (We featured another Suzanne Vega classic on Wicked Guilty Pleasures just last week).

The under-lip piercing makes us a little uncomfortable, but we love Kasey Chambers anyway.  There's a little more ache in this version - probably due to the deep country influence - than in the original, which was a fantastically sad song in its own right.  Also, there's a lot more ache in this version than in the Lemonheads version we featured previously.
