Play it Again, Sam #31b - "Twist in My Sobriety"
May 5, 2018 9:12am CST
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)

I should have went with a "c." Her version is actually pretty good.
