Covering Your Wednesday: Glen Hansard

Yesterday I mentioned in Tommy's post that Grace Potter would be the feature for this week's Covering Your Wednesday, but then I realized that today is Van Morrison's birthday. In my opinion, Morrison is one of the best songwriters and musicians ever, and the least I can do is pay tribute to him as he turns a year older. In order to do so, I've picked a cover of his song "Hungry For Your Love" by academy award-winning singer-songwriter, Glen Hansard. This Irish lad takes Morrison's already beautiful track and adds his own ethnic flair and wiry voice. Hansard keeps it simple, just like the original, and therefore conveys the same passion that Morrison does. Both are beautiful songs, and on Morrison's birthday, there is no better way to celebrate by spreading his music through others.
