The Late Movies: Acoustic Cover Songs for Fall

Mark Arminio

Tonight's Late Movies are a collection of my all-time favorite acoustic cover songs that have a fall-like feel. Grab a comfortable sweatshirt and a cup of hot chocolate and don't forget to share your own favorites in the comments.

Before Ryan Adams married Mandy Moore and started releasing an album every hour, he was part of a band called Whiskeytown. Here, listen to the alt-rockers covering Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams."

Here Sam Beam, frontman for the group Iron & Wine, covers The Postal Service song "Such Great Heights." The Postal Service / Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard claims that Iron & Wine's version helped the song gain popularity.

In this clip, Marie Digby grabs and acoustic guitar and covers the Rhianna track "Umbrella."

Here is the Man In Black, Johnny Cash, covering Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt." This song is haunting and full of remorse.

On of my favorite artists, here is Josh Ritter covering Bruce Springsteen's "The River."

Here is Joe Cocker with a live cover of The Boxtops' "The Letter." Something about this song always reminds of road trips.

A bit of a longer track, but worth it in my mind. This is My Morning Jacket sweetly singing "Oh! Sweet Nuthin!" by The Velvet Underground. Somewhere, Lou Reed would smiling. If Lou Reed smiled.

Finally tonight, here are Ray LaMontagne & Damien Rice singing the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody."
