Artist: Eva Pilarová
Title: Tam, odkud píše mi láska
Cover: ‘The Letter’ by The Box Tops
My good friend, Google Translate, says the Czech title of this song converts to ‘Where the love is written from’ in English. I have to admit, this sounds a bit clunky. But it is a more expressive title than ‘The Letter’.
The choral part in the middle of this song lifts it to a higher place, and it is decidedly funkier than the original. The strings at the end are reminiscent of Shirley Bassey’s version of ‘Spinning Wheel’, and all told it is a great version of an already cool song.
