    Try this cover of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now or her covers of Leonard Cohen.

    Or this one from Joan Baez, The night they drove old Dixie down by Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm.

    Coming from a dutch prime time talkshow (DWDD) where every evening an artist plays an acoustic short version of his/her favorite, or just because.
    From Youtube:

    Blaudzun - Shout (Tears For Fears). The 1.22 minute version is the best.

    I did. Her voice and notes were allright, but I thought it was a monotone uninspired version. I prefer the Lemonheads, or even Jamie Cullum on this.

    Here's another old dutch one, 1969 I believe it was:
    Brainbox - Summertime (Gerswin) with good old Jan Akkerman on guitar http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=CxUaohD3XZU

    Great version. I noticed there were only 5 cuts on that album, 10 minutes each average?

    Maybe a bit monotone on Pomplamoose but she is mesmerizingly beautiful IMO!

    Those were Brainbox' 5 biggest hits. They had 2 or 3 more minor ones and a nice hippie like version of Scarborough Fair.
    The front cover on Youtube comes from a 2002 cd though, filled with mostly 3-4 minute songs.
    Jan Akkerman later with Focus was once voted as worlds best guitar player. He's still touring bars and small concert halls, but still an awsome almost forgotten player.
    Singer Kaz Lux became deaf as a mule.

    I agree totally on Pomplamoose's beauty
