House Of Love vs. Marte Heggelund - Beatles And The Stones

British band House Of Love released their eponymous debut album in 1988, but really gained momentum with their second album, released in 1990, and also simply named House Of Love although it's often referred to as The Butterfly Album because of its cover. One of the very best tracks on what is a very good album, is "Beatles And The Stones", written by the band's frontman and sole songwriter Guy Chadwick. The band released an additional two albums that met with little or no success and then disbanded. They got back together for a new album in 2005 called Days Run Away which was pretty good, but didn't rock anyone's world despite that.

Then, let's head to Norway and the singer/songwriter Marte Heggelund. In 2006 she releases her debut album I Abide and two years later she's back with album number two, Treason. Surprisingly that album is spearheaded by a cover version of "Beatles And The Stones", and it's a beautiful take on an already beautiful song. It even has a guest appearance by none other than Marty Willson-Piper from Australian band The Church.

Here you have both versions, and they're both perfect in their different respects. Hope you like them as much as I do.
