Wuthering Heights / Some People...

Post by JEFF »

Listening to the brilliant Some People by Ooberon, I couldn't help recalling Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush - the chorus especially.

Then I got to thinking - who better to cover this classic than Ooberman, with Sophia on lead vocals! Instant radio hit I'd say!

Hmm, that would be rather interesting, yeah. I've got a brilliant yet slightly crazy live version of The Divine Comedy covering it. :D

I just downloaded "Wuthering Heights" and I see what you mean. They sound different, but do the same kind of thing in the chorus.
Preferred Ooberon.
The interview:
Suika: I think it's important for our band, any band, to have a message.
Interviewer: So, what is your message? What is the message of your band?
Suika: ...don't run with scissors?

I have a good cover of WH by a band called China Drum. Wouldn't mind knowing what the DC version sounds like though! My fav DC songs would have to be The Certainty Of Chance and I've Been To A Marvellous Party :)

The Certainty Of Chance is a brilliant song! I'm happy to re-upload the MP3 of The DC's live cover of Wuthering Heights if you're interested - just PM me and let me know, as I'm not with-it enough to do it tonight!!
