Bedouine – “Come Down In Time” & “Hey, Who Really Cares?”

In the midst of a busy fall on tour, Bedouine has digitally released two new versions of classic songs: “Come Down In Time” by Elton John & Bernie Taupin, and “Hey, Who Really Cares?” by Linda Perhacs and Oliver Nelson.

Bedouine’s Azniv Korkejian says about the songs she’s covered:

“Come Down in Time” is a beautifully bizarre song. The instrumentation is incredible. It sounds like they’re all courting each other, so interwoven but everything perfectly in its nook. The lyrics are special too, especially the ending, the way it hangs in the air. It’s just an amazing song.

“Hey, Who Really Cares?” is my favorite Perhacs tune. How has this not been sampled? Or has it? It’d sound stunning with a backbeat. We were tempted to do that but were limited with time so we used an analog metronome and Gus performed the delay on the tape echo. I had the privilege of singing with Linda a few years back. Somebody sample this song!
