GIVE ME A GUITAR! Sonic Youth - Superstar

Sonic Youth - Superstar (2004)

Originally by Leon Russell & Bonnie Bramlett, most famously by the Carpenters, this version features in the movie 'Juno'. With it's low-fi fuzz and distorted vocals, this alternative version is a firm favourite of mine (the Juno soundtrack is truly amazing) and is a bit of a must have for Sonic Youth fans.

Sadly, Sonic Youth have recently "ended", as in 2011, Thurston Moore (Vocals/Guitar) separated from Kim Gordon (Vocals/Bass) after 27 years of marriage. Recently Sonic Youth, guitarist Lee Ranaldo's, released an album 'Between the times and tides' which was featured here

Great version (even though I prefer The Carpenters). I wonder why Karen and Richard felt the need to re-title it? Haha! ;)
