It's gotta be 'is and always was' for me, it's just such a dynamic album and always makes me happy! grin

'mind movies' is such an amazing song to open the album and 'light of day' is the perfect closer. definitely my faves off the album. i also love the title track and 'high horse'. the only song i'm not a huge fan of is 'without you'. my fave album of his by far, all killer no filler. near perfect, beautiful album.

i think if it's done right it could be great! 'walk the line' was really good and showed johnny cash in both lights.
i've seen that interview with one of the actors that will play him and wasn't overly impressed. I watched 'moon' the other night with sam rockwell....man, that guy could play daniel for sure he's a dead ringer at times! watch it and you'll see!

when i first heard 'sorry entertainer', straight away i thought i could imagine nirvana doing a cover of it especially seeing as though kurt was a big fan of dan....

...well in the covers list,  check out the cover of sorry entertainer by a band called Ed the Tractor! it's just how i imagined it sounding....not that it's nirvana but they have a similar sound. check it out it's actually pretty good!

I first knew of him from kurt cobains tshirt back in the day but never looked him up or anything....then i heard this song on the radio, soko-i will never love you more (which i think is a terrible song) where she sings "i will never love you more than daniel johnston himself, to me he's more than god, i will never love you more".  Then one day i was looking through a bargain bin in a music shop and found a copy of the devil and daniel johnston...it was cheap so i bought it and loved it! then i bought welcome to my world and fell in love with his music and then began to hunt down his other stuff! I ended up buying 2 other copies of the devil and daniel johnston and gave them to friends who are now dan fans! that movie is the best introduction to an amazing musician! .....oh and i guess thanks soko  rolleyes

i'm not very computer savvy.....it's in that big list of covers on the fansite.

i love it! the songs are awesome...(except i'm not a huge fan of 'without you')
 The whole idea of the album is to hear it the way dan hears it in his head! it all sounds amazing and the lyrics are so good! if you listen to songs like 'rock n roll/EGA, life in vain and mountain top, they are very slick and i think he's kept it sounding fresh and current sounding. my favourites are 'mind movies','is and always was' and the amazing 'light of day'........best album closer ever!!!!

I'm new to this forum so i'm sorry if the topic already exists.....
ok, so what's your fave cover of a Daniel Johnston song? For me my fave would have to be Sparkle horse and the flaming lips 'go' from the discovered covered album, just beautiful stuff. I have done a cover of 'true love will find you in the end' which i think turned out ok.
