I absolutely love his covers of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, the Smiths songs. He was one of those musicians who could take someone else's song and transform it into something completely different. But does anyone have a list of covers Jeff Buckley performed/recorded?

Also what are your fave covers he performed. For me it is 'Dink's song'.

whole lotta love just before he drowned himself... oh sorry dissapeared... aww too soon?

He did tonnes of covers, but damn heck he was good at them. My favourite is definitely his version of 'The way young lovers do' (Van Morrison) or possibly 'Aligator wine' (Screamin Jay Hawkins) just because its such a bizzarre song.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

His cover of Je N'en Connais Pas Le Fin by Edith Piaf is superb, you can listen to it on his myspace (yes, he has a myspace!) http://www.myspace.com/jeffbuckley

Also an amazing song up there called Vancouver.
