It's such a fine Saturday morning that I almost feel terrible about bringing the mood down with today's very somber edition of Play it Again, Sam. Almost. We are at #31b, the "cover" portion: the Dreadful Shadows' cover of Tanita Tikaram's "Twist in My Sobriety." Dreadful Shadows are a goth/goth metal band that formed in Berlin in 1993, and, after a seven year hiatus, are still at it. Their cover of "Twist in My Sobriety" was included as a bonus track on the CD release of their 1999 album, The Cycle (they have a way with a cover. The band also does a pretty neat version of New Order's "True Faith!") I discovered Dreadful Shadows quite by accident, stumbling across them while researching some other goth band (I forget which one, it was so long ago.) I liked what I heard, so I ordered a copy of The Cycle. The inclusion of "Twist in My Sobriety" was quite a pleasant surprise. I think they did a pretty cool job with it! "Twist in My Sobriety" has also been covered by Szidi Tobias, Liza Minnelli, and a bunch of European goth, metal, and electronic bands that you've probably never heard of. I'm telling you, the song was a big deal over there! (Info verified by Wikipedia)
Mega-rare video of this cult gothic band ! Enjoy ;-)

You picked a goth cover over Liza Minnelli? Well, I never!

@teamfreak16 I like Liza a lot.Your right her version is not bad at all. This is the young Minnelli. Her voice was great at this time. Thanks for the video

@amadeo - You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it. I thought she did a good job on it. It's more upbeat.
