The 5 O’clock Shadow: Wednesday June 16, 2021
Many people would be surprised to learn the Shadow artist is not the original artist. She really made this song her own and left a mark on the music industry much bigger than her recording output would have you believe.
The original band only lasted five years. They reunited in 2019 for a handful of shows in the UK to mark the 15th anniversary of their debut album. The original artist and songwriter was able to buy a house with the royalties he received from this cover.
The song is about a woman who has gotten herself in to trouble with the law.
