Today on Vulture Recommends: Smiths Covers From Nitsuh Abebe

Smiths covers tend to be bad. It's sad, but it's true. That's why New York's Nitsuh Abebe has combed the Internet this week to bring you five not-bad Smiths covers. In fact, they're all pretty good! There's the Dum Dum Girls' vigorous take on "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," Stars' light and breezy (and French-Canadian) version of "This Charming Man," and Sandie Shaw singing "Jeane," with Morrissey himself in the background! Tune in and savor. This is a Smiths safe space.
