Steemit Open Mic Week 118 : Jolene(cover)

Happy New Year Steemit!

My friend and bandmate was playing this song yesterday, and I can't stop singing it, so here it is for open mic.

It's a cover of a Dolly Parton song, and one of those songs that I love every time I hear it.

To be honest, when I sing this song, I sing it not as a helpless plea, but as a bit of a threat.
The singer is obsessed with her man, and is really afraid of what she will do if Jolene takes her.

I hope that's not too creepy:)

Ah, this is one of my all time favorite songs.. and somehow I always enjoy the covers more than the original (sorry Dolly). I’ve always seen it as more of a warning rather than helpless plea as well. Really great rendition and I think you made it completely your own. Gonna go listen to it again, happy new year!

Have you heard the White Stripes cover? I think that's my favorite!

It is amusing to hear such song from a guy! I take the original version as a plea as the lyrics say so and with Dolly's pleading tone but yours indeed sounds like a threat. A threat from someone who will fight to the end for his or her partner. Cool rendition you got there! 😊

·

Thank you!
The song makes way more sense to me as a threat:)

·
·

I guess you're the defensive type then. Is it? 😊

I suppose I am:D

I loved your cover of jolene. There are few that I liked. highlighting that of Miley Cyrus and when in the Glee TV series they sang it. I liked that you gave him your personal touch. well done. good luck in the openmic

·

Thank you.
I was inspired to sing it by my bandmate, and also the White Stripes:)

Definitely, your version has that beware! vibe, I love it! Your voice is amazing, and this cover exudes a personal style that makes the interpretation very special. Thank you for sharing and congrats on the Curie upvote!

Thanks for checking it out, and I'm glad you liked it:D

OH I loved this version. This is my Favourite Dolly song. I like the way you wove it into such a passion filled ballad. I'd love to have this sung at one of our beach fires in the summer! Nothing like guitar and woodsmoke and waves.

Keep singing!

It's my favorite Dolly song too:)
It would be a great campfire song!

I love your interpretation of this song. It is a beautiful song and your version gives it a lot of substance.
