Stagger Lee: An interesting article about this song and the art of cover versions, plus 27 (!) versions of "Stagger Lee" available for download. →[More:] If you've never heard Nick Cave's version, this is your chance. Don't miss it.
Oh, this is great -- thanks! My first intro to the whole Stagger Lee legend came from the Clash's version of "Wrong 'Em Boyo," and it's been one of those cultural/music motifs I've been fascinated by ever since.
