Bon Iver - “Come Talk To Me” (Peter Gabriel cover) (from “Flume / Come Talk To Me”)
In 2009, Peter Gabriel released a cover album called “Scratch My Back.” He covered artists such as Arcade Fire, David Bowie, Elbow, and Bon Iver, among others. In return, most (if not all) of those artists covered Peter on a release he called “I’ll Scratch Yours.”
Peter covered Bon Iver’s “Flume,” so the favor was returned when Bon Iver covered “Come Talk To Me.” I can’t help but love Justin Vernon’s take on “Come Talk To Me,” a song Peter wrote for his daughter when she was little. This is how covers should be done, ya’ll.
Who WOULDN’T want to cover Peter? He’s the fucking MAN!
