In honor John Hiatt’s performance this week(Tuesday 10/17) in Princeton NJ (tickets here) here’s a sampling of some of my favorites from over the years.
John Hiatt has been making music since the early 70’s, his songs have been covered over and over again by his peers, who recognized his ability early on to pen a sharp tune. Three Dog Night, Dave Edmunds,Rosanne Cash,The Neville Brothers,Iggy Pop, and Bonnie Raitt are just a few that have utilized John’s songs. It was Bonnie’s hugely popular cover of Thing Called Love that lifted him from the relative obscurity of being the songwriter’s songwriter
to a household name. From his brilliant storytelling to his sly witted songs about life and love, John Hiatt is a master of his craft. Don’t just take my word for it, give the songs a listen and decide for yourself.
And if he plays near you, be sure to catch a show,as he is a captivating performer that truly knows how to charm an audience.
