This one caught me off guard. Glen Campbell's cover of the Foo Fighters' "Times Like These" is brilliant in an entirely different vein from the original. From his new album, Meet Glen Campbell which obviously takes inspiration from Johnny Cash's latter covers.

The album is a strange beast as I'm not a fan of Campbell's older work and dislike a number of the songs he's covering but the combination alters both to such an extent that it takes on a new and wonderful life.

I quite like this -- it's interesting to see a singer of his era getting into new music and obviously enjoying himself on stage. He's no Johnny Cash, but I guess he's paid his dues.
