Frank Turner “Falling In Love” – Listen

The album is ‘West Coast vs Wessex’ and the concept is fairly simple – it’s a split covers album with NOFX covering five of Frank’s songs, and Mr Turner returning the compliment with covers of five songs by NOFX.  And today’s song is one of those covers by Frank Turner.

Frank says: “When Mike asked me to do a covers split with NOFX, I was blown away, and immediately knew that one of the songs I’d do would be ‘Falling In Love’. I’ve long thought it was one of his best compositions, it’s a beautiful lyric and melody, and I wanted to come at the song in a way that would lay that bare and highlight the beauty of the writing. I think it came out pretty good.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
