  1. I was expecting to like the Patti Smith one, but it felt empty; the sense of searing, intense desperation that should be at the heart of that song was just missing.Sufjan Stevens wasn’t bad though, and thankfully nothing like Shakin’ Stevens. He does look and sound quite a lot like Don Maclean though.

  2. just watched later again and patti Smith was fantastic. I know what you mean though this version was harrowing. There is a live version of this on the later website -http://www.bbc.co.uk/later/ which is worth seeing. I love Sufjan – he is so fab. Wish he was playing greenbelt.
