LOVE MY WAY
Eddy McManus’ version of The Psychedelic Furs’ classic hit “Love My Way” is nothing short of brilliant. Originally released by the band in 1982, this song has long been a fan favorite and McManus does it justice with his stunning interpretation.
From the opening notes, McManus’ powerful vocals captivate the listener, delivering a performance that is both emotive and explosive. His vocal control and range are truly impressive, and he imbues the song with a sense of emotion and passion that is undeniable.
But it’s not just the music that makes “Love My Way” a standout track. The lyrics, written by the four members of The Psychedelic Furs and produced by Todd Rundgren, explore themes of self-acceptance and individuality. As lead singer Richard Butler has noted, the song is “basically addressed to people who are fucked up about their sexuality, and says ‘Don’t worry about it.'”
With its relatable themes and unforgettable melodies, it’s no wonder “Love My Way” became a top 10 hit in New Zealand, a top 30 hit in Australia, and a top 50 hit in the United Kingdom and United States. Eddy McManus’ version only adds to the song’s enduring appeal, making it a must-listen for fans of classic British rock and New Wave music.
