Beck covers the traditional ballad Corrina, Corrina

Corrine, Corrina (original title) was first recorded in 1928 and has since been recorded hundreds of times, with variations on the title, lyrics, melody and style. Beck recently offered up his own interpretation, which is to be included on a new compilation to raise money for the maternal health organization, Every Mother Counts.

His primary point of reference is Bob Dylan’s 1963 version, which tweaked the title and incorporated elements from a Robert Johnson song. But while Dylan’s version radiated the sunny zeitgeist of the early 60s, Beck mines the heartbroken lyrics for their emotional despair. It’s a haunting and poignant take on a song that will surely continue to inspire musicians for years to come.
