Strange Covers - Stay Home
A bit of a follow up to Monday's post. Eg White's first solo lp included this fantastic bit of pop. Originally recorded by one hit wonders with questionable dress sense Jellyfish (The King is Half Undressed), Stay Home wasn't a hit either in its original or covered form, which is a shame as it is a classy bit of songwriting. It has all the ingredients , sing along chorus , bah bah backing vocals , a squeaky clean production and hooks galore, but was largely ignored on release.
Stay Home - Eg White
Unfortunately the lp it is from seems to be one of those that only goes for silly money so is ripe for a cherry red re release!
