P-P-R #46: Songs Under Cover

Prior to the January 9th episode of You're So Post-Post-Rock Right Now, I visited Ben Proctor's History of Rock 'n' Roll class at Fairport High School, where we listened to originals and their distinct cover versions, side by side. I had a great time discussing the music with the students, and the idea of artists "making a song their own." This Post-Post-Rock playlist features the songs we listened to--Bob Dylan's "As I Went Out One Morning," The Velvet Underground's "Heroin," and Nirvana's "In Bloom"--plus additional music from Nina Simone, My Brightest Diamond, Leonard Cohen, and Jeff Buckley.
