Cat Power - Nude As The News / Wonderwall

This is my favourite Cat Power single, taken from What Would The Community Think? Below you can see a stunning tv performance where she uses Kim Gordon's guitar. The b-side of the single is a cover of Sonic Youth's 'Schizophrenia', which she ofcourse changed dramatically. Cat Power has a talent for reinventing songs and make them her own. Her first covers record is one of the best things she released.
'Wonderwall' isn't on it, but it's a good example of how she can transform a popsong in something supersad.
