Song of the day 7/8/10

Get thy bearing By Donovan

Donovan is my motherfuckin’ man. I slept on him well into my late 20’s and then was given a cd of his that totally changed all my misconceptions of the man. Sure, he’s a touch derivative of Bob Dylan and The Beatles but he’s very much his own artist. This song in particular is a weird one. Known more for his folk leanings, this is some weird Jazz infused rock type shit.

  1. He’s was born not too far from me.

    Random fact: His ex son in law was Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder.

    I know you shot me down last time concerning BOC, but if you get the chance check out the Happy Mondays.

  2. i’ve always been a big fan of this song although its the only donovan song i really know. my exposure to him has been this song and his part in the bob dylan documentary dont look back
