“Mother” (Live Danzig Cover)

    Trying to get that same tremor in your voice that Glenn Danzig produces when he warbles “mooottther” has confounded karaoke singers since the late 1980s. While the quest to emulate that towering achievement continues among drunk people up and down the land, Ryan Adams has simply given up trying, instead delivering a version of “Mother” that plays to his own strengths as a singer. He’s been performing the song while out on tour in Europe recently to support last year’s Ashes & Fire, and TwentyFourBit kindly points us to this superior recording of the track from a show in Paris just before Mother’s Day. Aw, isn’t that sweet?
