Doveman – Footloose Soundtrack

This is just awesome.  Doveman did these Cat Power style covers of the entire Footloose Soundtrack. It has a sad backstory of being a tribute to a deceased sister.  It\’s pretty effective.

I\’m certainly not going to criticize the songs, but they\’d be so good with a full band doing these songs.  Maybe Sufjan Stevens it up a bit with some banjo?  They\’re a collection of hymns the way they\’re done anyways.
