16 August 2021 - Sixpence None The Richer - I Need Love

It is interesting to me that Sixpence None The Richer, a band with roots in the Christian music world, covered this song, with the line "I need God, not the political church".  

And yet, Word Records put this out as part of their greatest hits album in 2004.  

Sixpence None The Richer have excellent taste in covers.   In this one, Leigh Nash brings her sing-songy voice to a song written and performed by the huskier-voiced Sam Phillips, and makes it into a differently beautiful masterpiece.
