The Pixies - I Can't Forget

Album: I'm Your Fan (Atlantic,1991) Chart Pos:N/A

The Leonard Cohen tribute album has two bona-fide classics which makes it better than 99% of tribute albums. The songs in question are John Cale's version of Halelujah (as featured on Shrek) which is probably the definitive version of the song, sorry Jeff Buckley fans. The other song being the Pixies version of I Can't Forget which transforms one of the weaker tracks from 1988's Im Your Man album into a wonderful uptempo rock song. as anyone whose heard thier wonderful version of Neil Young's Winterlong can attest The PIxies had a knack for making other peoples songs thier own.
