The Music of Lightning Rod: Part 1

A short post today, but as we close in on the release date of Lightning Rod, I figured I’d show some of the music that inspired me while I was writing it, and I knew I had to start with this. I know as a gay man, I’m supposed to prefer the original, but this version has always had a lot more personal significance for me.

    one of the best cover songs ever

    • It is an excellent cover. A friend of mine regarded it as more “bitter” than the original, but I feel it’s just as empowering, though it replaces the confidence of Gaynor’s version with an almost grim determination.
