COVER: Etta James "I'd Rather Go Blind" by Portugal. The Man

Portugal. The Man recorded this last summer, but with the recent passing of 1000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die artist Etta James, this song is getting renewed attention. Stream and download below. Via Cover Me

  1. Sorry...I couldn't get a message to send to you so here's your bonus fact for Iggy Pop's "The Idiot."

    If you wanted to sing "You let me violate you..." during the opening kick-drum to "Nightclubbing," that's because Trent Reznor sampled the beat as the intro to Nine Inch Nails' biggest hit "Closer" from the album "The Downward Spiral."

  2. I'm glad you posted it as a comment so everyone else can enjoy the bonus fact! I haven't heard much Iggy besides the 1000 Recordings entry Raw Power, so I hadn't heard "Nightclubbing" before (can't say I enjoyed it), but still good to know. Too bad you didn't wait a day, I just posted about Iggy today!
