The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.

The Show: Cover letters

The Joint has always maintained that if you’re going to cover a song, do it properly. Give the original a good aural kicking down a back alley and ignore any accusations of a lack of respect towards the original material.

We said it in the letters pages of Smash Hits* when Paul Young covered “Love Will Tear Us Apart” in 1983 and we’re saying it again today as we playlist Brian Case’s radical re-working of Elvis Costello / Robert Wyatt’s “Shipbuilding
