My next few Jams are going to be some of my favourite cover versions. Starting with Sonic Youth's version of "Superstar", written by Leon Russell, but made famous by The Carpenters.   6

I know this Carpenters' cover divides people, but it's been stuck in my head and I've been singing it all morning, so I thought I'd inflict it upon you... :)   8

One of the few times you'll Sonic Youth dabbling with an acoustic guitar. This was the lead double A side single shared with Redd Kross for the Carpenters tribute album "If I Were a Carpenter".   2

Sonic Youth have always been high on my list of bands I thought I should like, but just never did. Here's a big exception: their cover of the Delaney and Bonnie jam (made most famous by the Carpenters) is equal parts melody and melancholy... just as a tragicbeauty jam should.   9
