Nick Cave - In The Ghetto

+ 1 for Jeff Buckley Hallelujah and for his version of Lilac Wine

In the spirit of mutual support I will +1 your In The Ghetto, although also like El Vez's In The Bhario

Patti Drew does a good version, but nothing beats this

Incredible Bongo Band - Apache http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjiU2YAlYKY

You'll have heard a mix of this on an advert

Not bad for the guy who did the theme from Z Cars, and just listen to that Moog go

I used to not like it when I first heard it but now I think it's awesome!  Axl's voice when he is singing it live is just brilliant!
