One of my favorite cover-songs ever. The English post-punk/alternative/goth band Siouxsie And The Banshees released their cover of this classic Beatles song as a UK single in 1983. “Dear Prudence” became their biggest hit in the UK reaching #3 on the charts. The song was included on their 1984 U.S. release HYAENA. Not much needs to be said about such a popular song that was a masterpiece the first time around – except Siouxsie’s vocals, and the instrumentation of the endless melodies in this version are incredible.

Did you know Robert Smith, singer/songwriter and guitarist for The Cure, was a member of The Banshees during this time?
