Hey, We Do Covers, Too…
Here’s the catch, though. I have to love the songs to cover them. “Heat of the Moment” by Asia and “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young qualify. I’ve also played them so many times at this point, each song has its own little favorite memory associated with it.
Favorite Heat of the Moment memory: One time, Dave and I were playing it in Madison, WI and the thunder and lightning outside cracked at the right times throughout the song. Come see me for the #lightshow.
Favorite Harvest Moon memory: Dave and I were playing Harvest Moon at Cherry Festival in Paonia, CO. The twilight was coming on and there were lights in the trees… with the moisture in the air from the rainstorm that had just passed through, the air was literally sparkling. Everyone had a lawn chair and beer. Babies and old couples were dancing. Perfection.
