Ray LaMontagne & Damien Rice - To Love Somebody

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

 





Ray LaMontagne & Damien Rice - To Love Somebody

I took my sister & the missus to a gig last week and while we were waiting for the bands to start, To Love Somebody came on. The Bee Gees original is worth a recap and it got me thinking about this cover that I heard by Ray LaMontagne & Damien Rice.

It was filmed in 2007 for French TV and captures two of my favourite singer-songwriters perfectly.

There are rumours online that they (individually) are recording. I hope so as it has been quite a while since they've released any new material....

If you are a fan of Men with Beards, like the gentle stroking of a six-string, or just a miserable bugger, Subscribe to our Spotify playlist and read more Tuesday Blues here!

A great song that I have a few covers of, Gallon Drunk's being my favourite. I don't know these guys at all, but it's a nice version.

I came across this a few weeks ago, superb cover of one of my favourite songs....I will go for Nina Simone's version or even James Carr

Mr Swede - I'll have to check out the Gallon Drunk Version. Recommend you give Ray LaMontagne a listen. What a voice!

OP - James Carr - what a voice!!!
