Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

Eddie Berman with Laura Marling - Dancing In The Dark (2013)
My memory is getting bad. I heard this a few months ago and was blown away, but I sadly forgot to share it. So when I saw the winner of the voice performing this exact version I needed to find it and reclaim it for Eddie & Laura.
I've posted Laura Marling tracks in the past, her talent needs to be seen to be believed - on this she's not even trying - it looks like she is thinking about her afternoon tea. She's the musical equivalent of George Best, completely effortless, sorry, I'm gushing. As for Eddie, he's pretty rad, he has a beard and long nails. :-)
Anyway, it captures the beauty of Springsteen's tale of desperation and wanting to escape a shitty town perfectly. It also hit a nerve and triggered a number of memories from my youth. Feeling trapped living in a small Welsh mining town, wanting to escape and knowing there are better things out there....
