I (finally) experienced Juno last night, and also there’s a scene in the direction of the finish wright here Cat Power’s earthy, smoky voice fills the theater through her sublimely saddened version of “Sea of Love,” off her Covers Record.
As I walked out of the movies into the crisp and cold night, I found myself quietly singing another selection from that album, her elegiac variation of the Velvet Underground’s “I Found A Reaboy.” It’s much less than 2 minutes lengthy, and prefer most of her covers it’s even more of a recreation than a faithful reinforming. The lyrics morph; the only ones regular between the 2 versions go:
Oh I carry out believeyou’re all what you perceive (Velvet) /in all the points you say (Cat)
What comes is much better than what came before
. . . and you’d better come come come cometo meBetter come come come to me . . .
