Van She – ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper’ (Radio Rip) (mp3)
So I’ve never posted a radio rip before, but I found this track on Hype Machine this morning and it seems to be the only version around. I’d wait until an actual recording landed in our inbox, but then this post would be much less temporally appropriate.
I’m not much of a classic rock fan – nor even much of a Van She fan for that matter. Still, this is a pretty nifty take on Blue Oyster Cult’s ’70s hit and should make a splash on many a Halloween playlist tonight.
That’s me, though – Bruce Dickinson/Christopher Walker would likely be quite disappointed with this version.
Thanks, obviously, goes to Triple J. Happy Halloween to anyone else absorbing American culture today.
