Orville Peck – Smalltown Boy

Wow.
I’m somehow on a roll of posts that throw back to the first month of Fearsome Beard.
We first posted about this song HERE .

Bronski Beat / Jimmy Somerville’s Smalltown Boy gets right to the deeply rooted feelings of rejection and misunderstanding of my youth. As was in my first post, I realized I wasn’t as rejected as others I knew. However I knew that feeling and it tore, and still tears, at my soul. The very core of my being, love, was wrong according to the family, friends and society to which I was supposed to belong. It was isolating and lonely.

One of my recent musical interest has been the incredibly talented Orville Peck. My mouth literally dropped open when I opened my YouTube feed this morning and saw this cover. I couldn’t click play fast enough. I then stopped my morning routine to post it here on Fearsome’s blog.

Thank you Orville for covering and bringing new life to one of the most significant pieces of music of my life. Beautiful!
