Track of the Day: 'Sweet Jane' by Cowboy Junkies

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

Todd Litton emails a “haunting and hypnotic” cover song from Cowboy Junkies:

The Junkies’ quiet, rhythmic guitar stands in real contrast to the Velvet Underground’s amped up speed. And Margo Timmins’ ethereal, otherworldly voice transports the listener to another place.

Thanks for doing this series; I wouldn’t be hoping to see Sturgill Simpson in Houston in a couple of months if you hadn’t.
