Usually I pick one artist for YouTube Saturday and then select the best YouTube videos available to share with you. But today as a change of pace I’m going to select one song and select the best versions of it by artists that fit the Songs:Illinois aesthetic.
Of course no version of “Bird On A Wire” can compete with the author’s (although this one by The Neville Brothers comes pretty close) so first we’ll see a couple performances by the great Leonard Cohen.
Johnny Cash “Bird On a Wire”
Kd Lang “Bird On A Wire”
Judy Colllins “Bird On a Wire”
The Lilac Time “Bird On A Wire
