Earworm Wednesay: Because the Night (10,000 Maniacs cover)


So according to Wikipedia the source of all term papers in college  Bruce Springsteen was recording this song and his producer Jimmy Lovine was also Patty Smith’s producer.  Lovine gave Smith a tape of the song she recast it and history was made.

Now I never heard the Patty Smith version until much later, yes I know mea culpa, mea culpa, I was always listening to the 10,000 Maniacs version and not just because of Natalie Merchant but boy could she sing.  No I just enjoyed the eclectic nature of the band 10, 000 Maniacs.  So here is Because the Night
