Song of the Day: John Cale – Pablo Picasso

May 13, 2011

An asshole? Moi? No one has
ever said such a monstrous thing.

John Cale released a version of The Modern Lovers’ “Pablo Picasso” on his album Helen of Troy in 1975. Three years earlier he had produced the track for The Modern Lovers, but due to a variety of factors, their debut had yet to be released. The Modern Lovers would eventually be unleashed onto the world in 1976, four years late and still absurdly ahead of its time.

Here, Mr. Cale covers the homage to the great artist, lady’s man and renown midget.

The original:

Meanwhile, The Simple Minds are under the impression that Pablo Picasso was, in fact, frequently called an asshole. It is a controversy that is destined to rage through the ages.
