Song of the Day: 'Starman' (live) by 10,000 Maniacs

 I'd forgotten about this wonderfully understated cover of the David Bowie classic. The album on which it is included, "Campfire Songs," also includes a cover of "To Sir, With Love" featuring Michael Stipe, which seemed odd until it didn't.

These were b-sides (CD single style) in the U.K. Another one was Morrissey’s “Everyday is like Sunday.” I remember reading that he hated (no surprise) this version of his song, referring to Natalie as “ have a go Merchant.”
