The Miraculous Love Kids / Girl With A Guitar recently covered The Eurythmics' 1983 hit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" to help raise funds for The Miraculous Love Kids foundation. The foundation raises funds for young women suffering the effects of war and poverty in Afghanistan.
Taking part in the cover are excellent musicians such as Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Foo Fighters keyboardist Rami Jaffee, MC5 guitarist and vocalist Wayne Kramer, Umphrey’s McGee drummer Kris Myers, and way more.
Here's what Lanny Cordola of The Miraculous Love Kids / Guitar With A Girl had to say about the cover.
"I feel a moral and spiritual imperative to awaken humanity, in particular my brethren in the music community to help give a voice to the horrible plight of poverty-stricken, war-torn girls. Why girls? Because they have it the worst — forced into childhood marriages, stripped of their rights, and exploited in every way imaginable."
"We wanted to do something moody — a kind of gothic hymn — and we gravitated towards the dark yet hopeful spirit of this song. The lines in the song — ’some of them want to use you, some of them want to get used by you, some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused — really resonate, reflecting these troubled times. But then a glimmer of optimism — ‘hold your head up…keep your head up’ — gently flows through the voices of these girls who have experienced the worst that humanity has to offer."
Morello also added "These girls are so brave and so inspiring. It is an honor to make music with them."
