Ruby Rose Fox's version of "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy" and the accompanying video is haunting. It's haunting to the point that I'm hesitant to use that term since it doesn't feel strong enough. There is an occasional use of a whispered backing vocal that will just chill you to the core. The song, although beautiful, isn't a pleasant listen by any means. But that's kind of the point. It's almost a spiritual relative of Tori Amos' Strange Little Girls, which was an album of covers of songs by male singers/songwriters about violence towards women. For some reason, a listener never quite realizes how horrible these songs can be until a female voice is singing them.
