VIDEO OF THE WEEK: The Bangles ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’

December 18, 2017

So what do you get if you mix up a legendary American songwriting duo, the hottest girl group since before the phrase ‘girl group’ was even a thing, and Iron Man?

What you get is ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’, the Simon & Garfunkel classic unceremoniously owned by The Bangles in service of the soundtrack to the 1987 Robert Downey Jr. vehicle, ‘Less Than Zero’.

Shorn of the original title’s proposition as well as Simon & Garfunkel’s ephemeral delivery, The Bangles’ ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’ took a buzzsaw to the dreamy initial take..

The result? A timeless paean to our darkest season, the influence of which still emerges to this day, like a shark’s fin.
