Wish You Were Here

All over the years new bands covered the songs of their heroes to get a tribute to them or just because it were simply great songs. Some bands or artists were covered many times others less. I just know a only few bands who tried to cover a song from Pink Floyd. One of those who did it was Wyclef Jean, a Haitian-American Rapper . He first received fame as a member of the acclaimed New Jersey Hip Hop group the Fugees. In  2010 Jean filed for candidacy in the 2010 Haitian presidential electio, allthough te Electoral Commission subsequently ruled him ineligible to  stand as he had not met the requirement to have been resident in Haiti for five years. I like this version, it’s slow groove and the words Jean added to it.
