I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
I've proven who I am so many times / the magnetic strip's worn thin

Serena Ryder - Racing in the Street

Serena Ryder’s distinctive and raspy voice has rendered The Sisters of Mercy unlistenable to me when sung by virtually any other artist (one tribute albums’ misguided assignment of this song to Sting and the Chieftans can only be described as horrific.) Her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Racing in the Street is as beautiful a rendition of that song as any. Serena’s show at the Vancouver Livecity Downtown venue for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics was as fine a way to go out as I can imagine. With her grandmother in the audience it was a very fun night. An immense talent from just outside the little town of Peterborough, Ontario.
