20 Great Covers: 2) Dancing In The Dark by Amy MacDonald

The second song in the 20 Great Covers playlist is Amy MacDonald’s cover of Bruce Springsteens ‘Dancing In The Dark’. Amy MacDonald is a “rootsy folk-rock” Scottish singer-songwriter-guitarist best known for This Is The Life and Mr Rock & Roll. This subtle, orchestral interpretation of the song with minimal staccato accompaniment works really well and allows the lyrics their deserved prominence. Clip is taken from a performance with the German Philharmonic Orchestra in Luxembourg, 2010.
