The Vaselines-Son Of a Gun

Reminded by something completely unrelated that I love a good cover version, I finally looked up this cut, which is the original.

I like it. It's very sweet in a way that almost sounds sentimental, and, I think, very successful in it's own right. It's a good song. I've posted Nirvana's cover already, but maybe I'll do a side-by-side right here. The Nirvana version is quite a contrast, not exactly un-sweet, but not at all sentimental. By Nirvana, the song is dynamic and propulsive. I like both.
