Walking in ...

By admin Published: July 2, 2008

I've had "Walking in Memphis" stuck in my head for a couple of days, probably to purge the version on "Nashville Star" on Monday. (Makes me wonder if singer-songwriters are secretly pleased when TV talent shows commit musical heresy on their work, since it will send people scrambling for the better, earlier versions.) It's a song that, at least in Marc Cohn's original, I cannot get tired of.

UNFORTUNATELY, the Marc Cohn video of the song on YouTube has the embed disabled. (There are some other videos using the Cohn audio, but they're not as interesting.) But I did see the video for the Cher cover. ...

Maybe you think including that is another form of heresy. But she approaches the song respectfully, and has a good voice for it. And the video stands on its own. How could you not smile at Cher in Elvis drag?
