Elvis Costello's cover of Please

Anyone heard it? What do you think? It's one of my favourite U2 songs ever so I'm interested to hear a different interpretation of it.

I'm downloading it now off audiogalaxy, haven't heard it yet

great tip SkeeK, I never realized he covered it, but I remember Bono mentioning him "showing them how to play the song again" before they played Please last fall

listening to it now, it's acoustic the way they played it during the Elevation Tour, very nice...

Ooh! I feckin' love it!!

I hate to say it, but I think it's better than when U2 performs it. The first time I listened to it was the first time I realized what a brilliant song "Please" is.

well I much prefer Bono's vocals, but the guitar work is much more intricate and complex on this acoustic version

while we're on the subject of covers, has anyone heard this acoustic cover of Running to Stand Still? somebody by the name of Ari Hest... never heard of them, but it's a very enjoyable cover

It's on my piano. My webspace isn't working properly so I can't get a picture of it on line, and I'm too lazy to worry about it too much.

And speaking of covers, everyone download this NOW.. it's AWESOME!! http://www.mnemonicgroove.com/siam/mnemonic-siam.mp3

Costello always does great live covers. Check out his cover of "Ship of Fools" - amazing.

After a bit of consideration, I've decided it simply isn't possible to have too many versions of Please and Running To Stand Still.

Great cover.

I also just bought This Year's Model a few weeks ago. It's completely genius. (I Don't Want to Go to) Chelsea is one of the best songs I've ever heard.
