Could be an interesting covers post, but it is newly released and a good version of the Bruce Springstein classic “Dancing In The Dark”.  Ruth is an Australian born, current Canadian from Winnipeg (Go Jets Go) and a member of popular group, “The Wailin’ Jennys“.  The song is lifted from her 2103 solo effort “These Wilder Things”.  The folk/country rendition of this great song creates a completely different feel to the tune.  I really enjoyed the vocals.  Don’t forget to like my page on Facebook.

  1. A very interesting interpretation. But I have to say, if I didn’t know the original, I wouldn’t have made it through the whole song. There’s something very wistful and dreamy (and it feels unfocused) about her song, whereas Springsteen grabs me right out of the gate.
