DYLAN COVERS # 186 Golden Earing/Siouxise and Banshees (Live)/Shocking Blue - Wheel's On Fire


IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME WELL!

GOLDEN EARRING - Wheels's On Fire (1997)

Three takes here of Wheels's On Fire. The first take is by Golden Earring and here is an interesting fact for you about these good lads. They have been around  since 1961 and have been active for more than 50 years non-stop, which makes them the world's longest surviving rock band. Beat that Mr Jagger!

This can be found on the album Naked II (1997)

Second is an excellent live take by Siouxsie and the Banshees, recorded on 12/09/88 at the Royal Albert Hall and can be found on thealbum,  Siouxsie and the Banshees At the BBC (2009)
 
SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - Wheel's On Fire (1988) 

And finally a real shocker, Shocking Blue do a version on their Come back album called Comeback from 1988. Don't know what to think. A bit of a strange one, but you can dance to it. 'Nuff said.

A tricky one to cover I would've thought. Predictably, I'd pick Siouxsie's version from these three.

Just for the record: Golden Earring and Shocking Blue are/were based in my home town The Hague in the Netherlands; in fact they were from my neighborhood...
