Reblogged from bonus-tunes
Tanya Donelly with her group, Belly, did this beautiful cover of The Flying Burrito Brothers song as a bonus track on one of her CD singles. I’ve always loved her music probably more so than the average person. Her melodic sense and vocal tone has always appealed to me. The original Flying Burrito Brothers version of this song always sounded so so so sad to my ears. On this cover, the lush production, guitar work, and especially her vocal track really sweetens up this beautiful love song. Dare I say, I prefer this version to the original.
For those of you not familiar with her, she and her step-sister Kristin Hersh are the founding members of Throwing Muses.
I’m your toy
I’m your old boy
But I don’t want no one
But you to love me
No, I wouldn’t lie
You know I’m not that kind of guy
