Song of the Day: The Bangles – “Hazy Shade of Winter”

Happy birthday to Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles, who turns 58 years old today. This Simon & Garfunkel cover reached No. 2 in 1987 as part of the soundtrack to the film Less Than Zero and was put to better use more recently on the Netflix show Stranger Things. This was easily one of the band’s finest moments as they absolutely hit this cover out of the park; both the original version and this version are great though. Hoffs has stayed busy in recent years with The Bangles, solo work, and side projects such as her Under the Covers collaborations with Matthew Sweet. She played a comedy event in San Francisco a couple of days back (and not surprisingly still looks and sounds great).
