A song for today #2


Having first featured Woman’s Hour at the beginning of 2013, it’s a pleasure to see how they have risen over the last couple of years.

April 18 sees the annual Record Store Day, and Woman’s Hour will be releasing a limited 12″ single of their cover version of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing In The Dark.’ It’s a beautiful reworking, stripped down and utterly beautiful. It’s limited to 500 copies, so you will need to act quickly on the day. (And if you come across anyone buying copies purely to flog on the internet, give them an extra-hard stare from me.)

Hopefully this will get a widespread release, because it’s a beautiful reworking of a classic tune (and it’s just a little scary to realise the original is now over thirty years old…)

  1. To me, this cover does what I think a cover should do which is to re-interpret it rather than simply reproduce it, and they succeed brilliantly!
