I don’t like Beatles covers. At all. But I LOVE, love this cover of Dear Prudence by Alanis Morisette. She doesn’t try to fuck with it too much and it make it “hers.” She just sings it. I am not even a huge Morisette fan, but I enjoy her obvious respect and love of singing. I can tell she loves this song as much as I do.
I really want to name my first daughter Prudence. I have since I was a young little thing I first heard the White Album. Prudence reminded me of myself, a girl who needed to be talked into interacting with others. A girl who needed to know that she could have fun. A girl who needed to be told that she was beautiful. Not because she needed it, but because she was and it was important that she knew it.
I love Prudence. And, I enjoy this cover.
