iTunes Review

On 2013’s Foreverly, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and solo star Norah Jones cover The Everly Brothers’ 1958 album Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. The original album showed the Everlys foregoing their rock ’n’ roll moves for the traditional folk and country tunes they’d been taught by their father, Ike Everly. Billie Joe and Norah take a freer interpretation of these songs, shuffling up the original order and adding early rock ’n’ roll elements where they see fit. The harmonies are largely copied from the Everlys’ blueprint, with Jones obviously adding a feminine touch. Jones has already been over this terrain with her country outfit The Little Willies, but Armstrong’s never previously ventured beyond garage rock in search of his roots. Gene Autry’s “Silver Haired Daddy of Mine” features a tinkling piano and light early-rock groove. The Appalachian murder ballad “Down in the Willow Garden” is enhanced with a stalking lead guitar and pedal steel. Yet at the heart of these songs are, no surprise, stirring melodies and close-knit harmonies that convey an intimacy worth pursuing. 

Customer Reviews

Foreverly

If you can't get the original, get this version. Both of these artists do a wonderful job, and the songs are authentically heartbreaking! No Nashville Pop here. Just real old country sorrow.

Excellent Cover Album

I'm too young for the Everly Brothers, and really don't care for them that much. That said, Norah and Billy Joe do an excellent cover of "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us" with just as good harmonizing and a richer sound, probably in part to better recording technology and modern technique. That being said, I'm still not interested, and would buy the original version first if I adored this type of music. People who love folkie country and soft ballads will love "Foreverly." Fantastic title, BTW.

Beautiful memories, renewed

This has always been my favorite Everly Bros. album. I played the LP over and over when I was young (and it was new). I watched for it to become available on iTunes for a long time. When it did, I cried, because the harmony was as perfect and ethereal and beautiful as I remembered. I sang along all the way thru, most of the lyrics still there in my head. This Billy Joe and Norah cover is also beautiful; I like what they’ve done with some of the arrangements. Now, time to sing along.

Foreverly, Billie Joe
