A bit of fun: Alt-rockers Lights of Marfa cover Billy Joel's "Big Shot"





A bit of fun: Alt-rockers Lights of Marfa cover Billy Joel's "Big Shot"

And now, for something completely different. Lights of Marfa share the Nashville alt-rock scene with colleagues like The Ivins; their thunderous sound shakes stages around town. Recently, the band have pushed themselves to put out a new single each month; last month's single, an original called "Live To Forget", had a ballad-like quality to it, and February's "Run To You" was a straightforward rock cover of the Bryan Adams original. This month, Lights of Marfa have again chosen to go for a cover, this time giving their alt treatment to Billy Joel's 1978 single "Big Shot". Joel's version laid heavy on the rock elements, making it a timeless track that any modern rock band could tackle with ease. Lights of Marfa do it justice without stripping the original of its fire; take a listen for yourself down below. - Will Sisskind
