Im not a huge fan of cat power but i adore her version of "sea of love". It sounds so incredibly gorgeous and simple. Just her beautiful vulnerable voice and her strumming that harpischord. If she has a more beautiful song than that I'd like to hear it.

i don't think that should be considered as "Cat Power" (you know what i mean) cos its... covers, i think this option should be voided. i like You Are Free, and i kinda don't like the Greatest. Moon Pix is awesome too.

Metal heart is one of her tunes that i rather like.
That i know her cover of 'wonderwall' was only played on the John Peel show but it's widely available for download.

Bathysphere is a Smog song, not a Cat Power Song. (Of Course, you already knew that.)

That still doesn't make it a "Cat Power Song".

That would be like if someone asked me what my favorite Phish song was and I answered "Loving Cup", "Emotional Rescue", "Ramble On", "Good Times Bad Times", "The Real Me", "Take Me To The River"...etc.

Yeah, they've covered all of those tunes, but it still doesn't make those tunes "Phish Songs".

she didn't write it, but it has become part of her reportoire, and how come you aren't pointing out who wrote all the various tracks from her covers album when people choose them among their favourites?

Because almost all of those people mentioned that they enjoy her version of the song, or someone else mentioned the original artist, or they were obvious covers (i.e. Satisfaction). And also, because Smog is a great artist and if people like Cat Power's version of Bathysphere, they would probably enjoy hearing the original (in case they aren't familiar with it), so I took the opportunity to point out that it is in fact a Smog song (and an excellent one at that).

Why are you so defensive and attacking? I merely pointed out the truth and added info to the thread.
