Robyn Hitchcock’s ‘The Ghost In You‘ was featured on Roadies on Sunday night — Season 1, Episode 8 – “The All Night Bus Ride“. The track is Hitchcock’s cover of the Psychedelic Furs song, and was heard when Shelli was leaving the diner. It’s from Hitchcock’s 2014 album The Man Upstairs.
And it is a song that, while the original Furs’ version is one of my all-time favorite tracks, Robyn Hitchcock’s stripped down version of ‘Ghost In You‘ is even more touching, as it’s such an intimate sounding song.
Of course, that could be because his voice is so sweet, or because I sat backstage with him once in Cincinnati, Ohio and thought he was one of the nicest men I had ever met. I honestly don’t know.
