Covers: Suicide Is Painless

“Suicide Is Painless” was the theme song for the 1970 film M*A*S*H. An instrumental version was also used in the long-running TV show.

Covers: Subterranean Homesick Blues

“Subterranean Homesick Blues” (1965) is Bob Dylan’s first great electric song. I can;’t imagine why anyone would cover this unique recording and Nilsson’s version is wretched. I’,m posting this now because of the Instragam post showing the cards Dylan held up during the video for the song.

The song has many great lines but my favorite is “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” which inspired the name of the left-wing Weathermen.
