Oh, Winter, you’re killing me!
Isn’t it time for Spring yet?
I suppose I shouldn’t complain. South Florida has been spared the more brutal conditions to which most of the US has been subjected. Still…
I’m ready for plenty of sunshine and balmy breezes, for shorts and sandals and sipping cocktails at an outdoor table and watching the world pass by.
Tonight’s serenade is a new take on a 1066 Simon & Garfunkel classic, Hazy Shade of Winter. The Bangles covered it in 1987, and if I’m honest, this new version by Gerard Way sounds like the same arrangement.
That being said, I think the guitar is fresh and I’m thrilled that someone’s breathing new life into a great song here in 2019. See what you think.
On this weekend in what feels like an unending winter, I hope you’re staying warm. Be sure to hug those you love.
Happy Saturday night!
P.S. I’m including the original Simon & Garfunkel as well as the Bangles’ cover. Maybe it can be said that each version represents their own generation.
