Chris Cornell-Sunshower [VIDEO]
My favorite performance and song from Chris Cornell is “Sunshower”. It appeared on the soundtrack to the movie “Great Expectations” in 1998. I was then pumped for Euphoria Morning, hoping to find the song as a “bonus track” or something. It was not included on the c.d. (except on the Japanese version). Now Cornell has released a solo “Greatest Hits Live” kind of a c.d. and guess what is not included?
On the 16 songs “Songbook” collection, Cornell performs 16 tracks, about 8 of which I recognize. Among them are Soundgarden, Audioslave and solo cuts. In addition to “Sunshower”, Cornell skips the Temple of the Dog cut “Say Hello To Heaven”. Cornell doesn’t seem to have a problem playing these cuts live (as seen below) but they are not included in “Songbook”. He DOES include the Zeppelin track “Thank You” and John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
