I seriously love that with every cover Amy is giving us so much insight to how she went about doing a cover of the songs she chooses...the back story to this one is awesome. It's a shame it didn't make it into Cabin in the Woods...cause that is one of my favorite films. Cult classic now. So pumped we are getting some songs from the Lillywhite sessions sometime soon...please please please release "Perfect Dream"... ever since I heard that preview of it I have been dying to hear the whole thing. Sounds so different but so EV at the same time. AHHH.
As for the cover goes, amazing. Amy's range is killer. Bravo Amy!!!! Very well done Producers def missed out on adding it to the film

^^YES Perfect Dream, I was crazy about it in 2009 and was so sad that we'd never get to hear it. Since I heard the news yesterday I completely forgot about that song for some reason. I so want to hear PD!
anyway not sure how I feel about this cover, it isn't a type of song I would normally listen to but it's Amy and I just
Same. I like the lyrics and I like the sound of the "feel like crying" part but I'd never purposely play this song if it weren't Amy singing it. The style is just too different from what I normally listen to.

Ahhh I love that she covered this song! It's so perfect in Eyes Wide Shut. Her version is so unique though! I'm glad she put such a different twist on it. It's very grungy and sexy. Also love the video! I really like the style of this director she's been using for all the videos. And the backstory is really neat to hear too! I'm so bummed it didn't end up in Cabin In The Woods, as I LOVE that movie. But oh well, I'm glad it finally got to see the light of day!
I hope after she's finally released all the covers, she'll compile them all into a purchasable album. Though that might get too tricky with all the different copyrights and whatnot. I want to support her in some way for all of this awesome music though!
With one more cover or maybe 2, this whole project can turn to a perfect album in term of the number of trax. it'll only need a booklet!
You mean an EP? it needs more tracks to be an album, 11/12 really.
Also I am gutted this cover has been viewed the least so far, it has only got just under 70k in 2 days unlike some of the other ones. That may be due to the song itself not being as popular as the other ones she has covered which is understandable.
