I'm immensely honoured to contribute to a post on someone else's very fine blog today (thank you, Martin), in which I fantasise about what would happen if a Mod hero was on the receiving end of a little feminine touch down amid the tangled trees. Well, erm, something sort of like that....

I don’t like football so the idea of a fantasy football
league doesn’t mean a thing, but ‘fantasy cover versions’? Love it.
Thanks to Martin at the excellent blogNew Amusements, I’ve been
ruminating over ideas for these all week…
Please take a look at his introductory post to
see what it’s all about and his first suggestion - anyone can join in.
I’ve picked something I’d love to hear covered by an artist I particularly admire, which is due to feature on New Amusements next week.
And Rol from the brilliant My Top Ten has come up with something truly inspired.
It’s become a talking point here at SDS Towers too. Mr SDS suggested he’d like to hear KaceyMusgraves singing Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Landslide’ (imagining it sounding similar to
the great Dixie Chicks’ version) – but on looking it up he found a live version
she’d done with Lady Antebellum, so it wouldn’t really count (it has to be true fantasy!) Would still like to hear a studio version,
though (so, if you're reading this, Kacey?!) He was also reminded of a
colleague from years ago who’d once said he fancied hearing Nirvana tackling
the La’s ‘There She Goes’. I can imagine that too, stretching Kurt’s
voice nicely and perhaps delivered in the manner of the MTV Unplugged sessions. See - once you start thinking
Please go drop Martin a line via his blog if you fantasise
about such things too. I'd love to see more.
