Mariuk and I discovered together the story of this song a few years ago on Discovery channel. We were hooked. After the show ended (it was about preconceptions and stupid traditions), we started digging on the Internet for all the cover versions. Among the approximate 90 existing, we settled for just a few.
I will let Domnux post la piece de resistence, as he is the one who discovered it.
Diamanda Galas – this one really freaks you out
Portishead (they couldn’t have missed it, could they?) – Voice Sarah Mclaughlin; not Beth Gibbons, but still good
