Stairways to Heaven

So, in the wake of the Beatnix’ version of Stairway to Heaven, I discovered Stairways to Heaven. I’ve listened to quite a few of them (or at least the beginnings of quite a few) and so far they roughly fall into the following categories:

  • People mucking about doing something vaguely related to Stairway. Null points to the clip of the yodelling Australian lady.
  • Plain covers with almost-identical beginnings. One wonders why they bothered, as with so many cover versions.
  • Novelty covers that are different and decent (the Beatnix are the best, and I think Gilligan’s Island also qualifies).
  • Covers in a style that just doesn’t work. Sorry, but chip music really doesn’t cut it for this one.
  • Covers that are actually quite well done, and probably to someone’s taste, but not mine. e.g. Dolly Parton, London Symphony Orchestra.
  • Covers that totally nail my musical prefs. Bellanova, Jana, where have you been all my life? (Skye, you should check these out too!)

I’ll keep you posted of any further standout versions.
