U2 – This Is (Aslan Cover) audio and video

Video of U2 performing the Aslan song “This Is” as part of a benefit concert for Christy Dignam. The concert took place in Dublin on June 21, but U2′s “beamed in” performance took place in NYC at Electric Lady Studios.

I like this. (Hey, 3:50 – 3:57, I’m talking to you.)

You may also be able to find an mp3 of the audio from the above video here.

Here is video of Christy Dignam and Aslan performing this same song (in 1999):

Listen: Garbage Covers Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

I’m a fan of Shirley Manson’s voice but musically the band Garbage has never done much for me. That’s about how this cover plays out. (For me!)

This song is from the Ahk-toong Bay-bi-covered CD in Q magazine (out soooon).

Listen to Jack White cover Love Is Blindness
Previously: Listen to Damien Rice cover One

You can hear some other brief clips from that covers CD (The Killers doing Ultraviolet; Patti Smith doing Until The End of the World; Snow Patrol doing Mysterious Ways) on this audio clip with Q editor Paul Rees.
