Happy Birthday to the Belfast Cowboy!

I'll be honest, I've never been a huge Hozier fan, don't dislike him, just don't seek out his music. Plenty of other people like him, though. Today, I got a different perspective, I heard a cover of Van Morrison's 'Sweet Thing' that changed my mind. Hozier was born to cover Van Morrison, his voice is like a young Van's and I seriously think Hozier should do a Van Morrison covers album, for reals. Listen for yourself. And Happy Birthday, Van, you curmudgeon you.


The original 'Sweet Thing', by Van Morrison
Sadly, no Citizen King cover exists on You Tube.
