Comfortably Numb

Standard

I saw Venus do this cover of “Comfortably Numb” during an All the Pretty Horses show, and when I heard she was doing a solo set on KFAI’s Live from Studio Five, I emailed her and requested that she perform it again. Every once in awhile, someone comes along and just TAKES OWNERSHIP of a song, cuts themselves in, covers themselves in the blood, folds in and coagulates with the original. This one seems so deeply personal to Venus, and when I saw her perform it, I got very choked up. You almost forget that it’s a Pink Floyd song!
