Winter Song of the Day: "Hazy Shade of Winter"


Welcome back to this month's Song of the Day series, celebrating our transition to that most dark of seasons: winter. Today's special? "Hazy Shade of Winter," Bangles version.

Despite being a diehard fan of Simon and Garfunkel, this is one of those rare cases where the cover is clearly superior to the original. Sorry SG, but girl rock with killer riffs wins almost every time.

The original was featured on the soundtrack of The Graduate, while the cover was featured in Less than Zero (look out for the band, who make cameos throughout the movie).
