During an Irish stop on their tour together, Ryan Adams and Natalie Prass busted out a cover of a Dirty Dancing cut once performed by Patrick Swayze. The pair performed a somewhat ironic version of “She’s Like the Wind” this week in Cork, playing through occasional laughing from the crowd. But it’s a somber, stripped-down ode to Baby, and even more intimate given the only instruments are Adams’ guitar and their two voices as opposed to the in-your-face ’80s over-production.
Swayze, longing for Jennifer Grey’s Frances up in the Catskills, busted out the cheesy ’80s ballad featuring Wendy Fraser for the classic 1987 film. It once reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, reminding us the power Swayze once possessed.
