Hush, Hush, I thought I heard her calling my name…


I was struggling to think of a title for this picture, or even this post and I employ a lot of tactics to come up with a title. Sometimes reading favourites quotes but most often song lyrics or titles. The title for today comes from the name of the Lingerie I’m wearing ‘Hush’ and being a huge Britpop fan the cover of the Deep Purple song Hush by Kula Shaker jumped into my mind. It’s funny how things link together in your mind as I was talking earlier in SL to a long time friend of mine who used to DJ at my club who didn’t know that the original of the song wasn’t the Kula Shaker version. This was particularly bizarre as I’m pretty sure that DJ would have considered himself to be more of a classic rock DJ in the past too.

This in turn then got me thinking about other songs that often people don’t realise are covers and headed off to browse the internet for some of the most common. There were some surprising results and some I knew already. Here’s a few:

  • Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O’Connor – a cover, originally written by Prince and performed by The Family
  • I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow – a cover, originally released by The Strangeloves
  • RESPECT by Aretha Franklin – a cover, originally written and released by the great Otis Redding
  • Torn by Natalie Imbruglia – originally performed by EDNASWAP
  • Step On by Happy Mondays – originally performed by John Kongos as ‘He’s Gonna Step On You Again’
  • Ray of Light by Madonna – originally known as Sepheryn (Ray of Light) by Curtiss Maldoon

and a couple of sources of samples which I LOVE…

  • Praise You by Camille Yarborough sampled by Fatboy Slim on Praise You
  • Woman of the Ghetto by Marlene Shaw sampled by Blue Boy on Remember Me
