Mark Lanegan is able to translate in his rendition of this wistfully beautiful and hypnotic song all the melancholy and displaced hope the original tune evokes. It’s never an easy task to tackle with the classics, but this is indeed a great remake of a haunting gospel ballad .
Hey, look man, some people don’t have a choice, they don’t even have a voice they can talk with to just call their own, so the first thing they see that allows them the right to be, they go ahead and follow it. What else do you want? You know what that’s called? Bad luck.
