Natalie Imbruglia covers 'Friday I'm in Love'
As reported back in March, Natalie Imbruglia's new covers album, 'Male', includes her take on 'Friday I'm in Love'. She was on The One Show tonight and said it's her favorite cover on the album.
And from Digital Spy:
Then there's that iconic Cure song you've covered, 'Friday I'm In Love'...
Yeah, but you've turned it into your own song with that barnyard vibe and it really works.
"It's so much fun to do live. We did it at a couple of festivals and the crowds were going crazy for it."
When someone comes to you and says, 'Right we're going to take this really famous track and do it like this', are you just like, 'Crap - what am I doing?'
"I think that was the only one - 'Friday I'm In Love' - where I was a bit like, 'Oh I don't know how I feel about this'. But it's one of my favorites now. I mean, you can't please everyone. I'm sure there are going to be some diehard fans who won't want to hear any other version of any song, but if you're going to do a covers album, you have to be prepared for that."
