Scavenger Hunt Status

Here’s the complete list of the songs that Jeff Buckley has ever performed and/or recorded – thanks to the people over at JBC.

Note that:

  1. This was generated in 2007, and apparently, according to recent reports, there are still a few songs that have yet to see the light of day.
  2. The list below only reflected one version per song, to avoid clutter, but given that he has done numerous gigs in his short life, there are a lot of interesting variations that are worth securing – for example, the purely acoustic guitar performance he did at KROQ-FM of the song “Last Goodbye” was magical, and can very well be the simplest, most effortless display of his guitar skills, unlike the album version which is still awesome, but in a complicated, ga-zillion chords way; and his solo take of “All Flowers in Time Bend Towards the Sun” seemed much much more emotional than the recorded duet.

I’ve crossed out the ones that I already have to give you an idea on how far I’ve gone. However, I don’t plan on acquiring all the songs, as I have already rejected a few, like “Malign Fiesta” (too noisy) and “Auld Lang Syne” (why would I want to hear him sing that, anyway?) The frustrating part really is not being able to find the must-haves like “Round Here (Counting Crows cover)”, “Everyday People (Sly and the Family Stone cover)” and “Flutter Girl (Chris Cornell cover)”.

Sigh… searching for rare John Mayer songs wasn’t this hard! I found John’s cover of Jeff’s “Lover, You Should’ve Come Over” on my first try! Plus, I stumbled upon his version of “Mojo Pin” by mere accident.

  1. Hi there — I found your site by doing a search for Jeff Buckley’s recording of “Madame George”. I can’t seem to find this song anywhere; apparently it’s from a bootleg or demo recording? Anyhow, I notice that this is one of the songs on your impressive list that you already own. Could you please give me some guidance as to where I could find the recording? I would love to have it on my iPod. Many thanks for any help you can offer; please email me.
    Best regards, and good luck finding the other songs on your list!
