One of the most annoying things about American Idol is the fact that the performers always switch the gender of the songs, because apparently it's too weird for a guy to sing "Son of a Preacher Man," so he changes it to "Daughter of a Preacher Woman." Saadi's gender flip on Bob Dylan's "Daddy, You Been On My Mind," in description, set my blood a-boiling, but this is so hazy and vaguely creepy (the fact that "daddy" is used adds a weird layer here) that I hardly recognized the original. Which is basically the best case scenario for covers, because you don't want listeners to solely be thinking about the source material.
This song is on a 12-inch by Saadi that is out now.
