Saturday video break: Jealous Guy

Song #71 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Jealous Guy”, by John Lennon and covered by Roxy Music. Here’s the original:

That’s apparently one of Lennon’s more widely covered songs, but I can’t say I’d heard it before. Here’s the Roxy Music cover:

Nice. Structurally the same, but unquestionably in the Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry style, and of the 80s. What do you think?

    Lennon had been trying to find something to do with that melody since the Maharishi days, when it was “Child of nature” or “On the road to Rishikesh” — I think it was among the Kinfaun demos considered for the white album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzw0ww7jap4
