The A.V. Club - Ben Watt and Bernard Butler cover Wang Chung: "Dance Hall Days"
The A.V. Club

Ben Watt and Bernard Butler cover Wang Chung: "Dance Hall Days"

Ben Watt is half of Everything But The Girl, the long-running but largely inactive duo rounded out by his wife, Tracey Thorn. The two brought their group to a halt in the late ’90s, not too long after scoring sizable hits with “Missing” and “Walking Wounded,” but Watt kept busy with a dance-music label, Buzzin’ Fly, and Thorn has released a handful of solo albums over the years. Watt just released his second-ever solo album, Hendra, a mere 31 years after his first—it’s a quiet, contemplative set he created with guitarist Bernard Butler, who’s best known as part the original Suede lineup. Throughout his career, Watt has sprinkled interesting cover versions into his work; here, he and Butler take on Wang Chung’s “Dance Hall Days.” The song was a hit right around the time Watt was starting out, and his take is lovely and gentle.
