Siouxsie – 4 of 7 – Overground (x3)

More ‘proper Siouxsie’ – Overground is track three on The Scream. For many a year I’d have named Metal Postcard as my absolute favourite from this album, but that accolade now passes to Overground. Here’s the original 1978 version

I’ve only just learned that Overground was reworked in 1984 for The Thorn EP. Presumably this next clip is a live variant of the Thorn version. Either way it’s beautiful, life-enhancing stuff

And this is the ‘official’ studio Thorn version (audio only). It doesn’t work quite as well for me as the above, but I’d not heard it ’til now, and it’s different enough to warrant inclusion
