Belle and Sebastian Cover
December 4, 2009 10:02 PM   Subscribe

I heard of cover of Belle and Sebastian's "Get Me Away from Here I'm Dying," and I cannot figure out who was performing it. The guy who was playing it didn't know; he said it got it off some movie soundtrack or something, so I don't think it was a particularly rare or difficult-to-find cover. The singer's voice sounded a bit like Morrissey. It definitely was not Stuart Murdoch. Is anyone familiar with it? It's killing me.

The Belle & Sebastian recording is on the Forgetting Sarah Marshall soundtrack. I haven't seen the movie, but one of the characters is a "rock singer". There could be a cover version in the movie.

Yes, it's probably Russell Brand from the Sarah Marshall soundtrack.

Russell Brand doesn't sing that song in the movie, and the only version on the soundtrack is the original Murdoch version. OP, why don't you get your friend's disc/ mp3 copied and run it through gracenote or whatever music matching software Itunes uses these days?

Maybe it was the Tigermilks' cover?
