SONG FOR SUNDAY #56: Miles Davis – Time After Time


Miles Davis’ cover of Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time is our Song For Sunday.

During his career revival in the 80s, he released You’re Under Arrest, a jazz fusion album packed with pop numbers and political themes. One of those pop songs was a rendition of Time After Time and despite lack of breathing time between releases (the original only came out the previous year), Miles still found a way to inject life into the composition with his classically “cool” approach.
