Covering a classic

Covering a classic song is always tricky. I have always associated Bacharach and David’s ‘Walk on by’ with Dionne Warwick – a masterpiece of timeless elegance. So I was surprised and delighted to hear Rumer’s version this week.

This sent me to YouTube to check out other versions. Honourable mentions go to Diana Krall, Seal and – surprisingly and differently – The Stranglers. But for now, Rumer is my favourite.
