One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands. I have MTV to thank for this discovery. I remember seeing the original video, and loving the sound, the song, the lyrics, the singer, the band. And the gear porn--a table (table?) full of guitar stomp pedals, racks of keyboards reminiscent of some of my favorite prog rock idols. What was not to love? I ended up buying "Misplaced Childhood" and absorbing it one December while listening on my mom's CD boombox (a luxury item for us), as I slept on the couch, trying to get comfortable as I recovered from a cracked collar bone. "Seconds Out" by Genesis (particularly "Supper's Ready") was on heavy rotation at the same time. Marillion went on to become one of my all-time favorite bands. Well, Fish-era Marillion, at least. After he left the band, I sort of did, too. But those four Fish-era studio albums, B-sides, EP's, live stuff--loved it all. Fish (aka Derek Dick) was a colossal figure (literally and figuratively) for me in those high school days. It culminated with me getting to meet him backstage briefly after a great Marillion show at the Glenn Miller Ballroom on CU campus in Boulder during the "Clutching at Straws" tour. The man is one of my favorite poets, not to mention singers and frontmen. His lyrics are second only to Neil Peart in my book. And they're just a hugely talented band overall. I totally get that they're not for everyone, so don't be shocked if you listen to them and don't "get it". I'm just glad I did.

Love this tune. And this is one of the finest covers I've heard. You always seem to translate the feel of the song Mike rather than a soulless carbon copy. Good stuff!
deb8tn
You are so talented. Beautiful job.
Bart W
love the dumpert sign! ^^
Aris Alamanos
I love it how you did the guitar solo with the vocals...Rothery's solos are second to none in terms of emotion (screw Gilmour) and you got the vibe 100% with your voice.
Laura Hirsch
Ok, I'm impressed. This cover does the original definitely justice. I expected to be disappointed because the song is one of my all-time favourites, but I was proven wrong! You have an amazing voice.
Brijjitz
beautiful! Love Marillion. You've made my day a bit brighter!
acoustic buff
Yes. YES!! Mike, I just had to create a youtube account to congratulate you on your art. This is so great. Period. I'll purchase this right away. Have you ever heard about an Irish band named Aslan? Check it out, I believe a cover of "Pretty thing" would be a perfect fit for your vocals. Just saying! :)
kayleighlasorm
Haha. I love this cover!! I was named after this song 🙃
Bikonito
You should post this to Fish's facebook page! I'm sure he'd love to see it.
acoustic buff
... I have been watching this about a dozen times since you've posted it (well, compatibly with the family routine, that is). I'm telling you, it's giving me goose bumps... I'll be hoping for another (ANY) Marillion cover, from the Fish era. Btw, so glad there's one less lawyer (I am one myself, so I am allowed to say that ;) especially since this world gained one (full time) artist of your caliber.
