I am a proud child of the ’80′s. I was weaned on John Hughes films and indie rock. I remember Walkmen, the original “V-Jays” and how to make big hair. I loved The Smiths.
Scratch that, I still LOVE The Smiths.
Recently, a tribute album was released. You can find it on iTunes HERE. Please, Please, Please – A Tribute to the Smiths started me searching for other covers of their songs. Musicians love The Smiths so I had lots of choices. Below are four versions of Please, Please, Please Let me Get What I Want for your perusal:
The Original by The Smiths
She & Him
So listeners, what do you think? Are you still in love with the original or open to some new versions? Personally, nothing will top The Smith’s original version for me, but I still own most of these covers as well. A girl can never have too many options.
