'PRETTY LOOKING PEOPLE'
|They used to laugh about dying!|
I loved the film Bonnie and Clyde starring Warren Beattie and Faye Dunaway from 1969 and when I heard there was a new TV version over two episodes I was quite looking forward to it.
I am sad to say it was rather disappointing. I could not understand a word they were saying. The Texas drawl was over done and there was no subtitles.
I don't know why I persevered and watched the second episode. I am glad I did as the song over the credits was superb. I new the song but was not sure of the singer. I thought it may be Ray Lamontagne.
After a little internet browse I found it was by Antony from Antony and the Johnsons. It was from a tribute album of Leonard Cohen songs called I'm Your Man (2006). I remember the album but never got round to getting it.
It was most enjoyable especially the Antony cover. I have also added Beth Orton's magnificient live cover of the Sisters Of Mercy, which incidentally was the first LC song I heard and was on the fabulous CBS compilation album 'The Rock Machine Turns you On'
