Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Kirsty MacColl – Days

maccoll

425 – Kirsty MacColl – Days (1989)
Written by Ray Davies
Produced by Steve Lillywhite
Label – Virgin

It’s rare that a cover version surpasses the original recording, but Kirsty’s serene vocal on this beautifully written bittersweet mid tempo ballad originally recorded by The Kinks serves as a reminder of Davies’s songcraft but MacColl’s mastery of interpretation. It still hurts that she was taken away far too soon.
