Patti Smith - Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Album: Twelve (Columbia,2007) Chart Pos: N/A

Patti Smith reminds me a bit Iggy Pop in the fact that she one of those artists whose appearance seem to be frozen in time. I saw a recent interview where she appeared to be dressed in the same attire she wore on the cover of her debut album Horses. In 2007 Patti Smith released a covers album called Twelve, anyone who listened to her wonderfully reinterpret classics such as Gloria and Land of a 1000 Dances were faced with a rather dull lifeless album which sounded more conservative than idiosyncratic. But despite this i actually liked her version of Tears for Fears Everybody Wants to Rule the World even though as covers go its not whats she's truly capable of, its still a solid cover version.
