Monday Earworm: Ani diFranco (once more)

This is my favorite, favorite, favorite version of this song. It might in fact be the only one I like. I love it.

  1. My favourite is this one.

    Yes, I know it comes across as something totally different until the singing starts. I also like the montage to this YouTube video – it reminds us that the man who wrote the words was a reformed slave-ship captain.

      1. The tune is much earlier that the Animals’ version. The first recording of it was made in 1933, but its origins are older still and subject of speculation. The Animals would have heard this absolutely cracking version on the first Bob Dylan album. I was only a kid when it came out, but I can remember hearing someone playing it, and it absolutely knocked me over.
