Juliana Hatfield's cover of Dinosaur Jr.'s 'Raisans' comes as no surprise to fans of either. Hatfield has long made known her adoration for Dinosaur Jr. and when listening to her music, it's easy to recognize similarities in style.
But make no mistake: While 'Raisans' is indeed a Dinosaur Jr. song, Hatfield makes it her own. Her take is both tender and tough, bitter and sweet. She turns down the distortion and adds some oohs and ahhs to soften things up a bit. Well, as soft as they can be while singing lyrics like "Now I'll have to decide the fate of my sanity."
In fact, it was from the lyrics of this song ("It's only everything standing in front of me") that Hatfield drew the title for a future album: 1995's 'Only Everything.'
