Juliana Hatfield Covers Olivia Newton-John's "Physical"

"Physical" is the song by Olivia Newton-John I most relate to her. That song was everywhere back in the early to mid 80's, and since it had an aerobics inspired video, it's always the go to for anything set in the 80's that needs an aerobics scene. 

Needless to say, once the tracklist was revealed for Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John, I could not wait to hear her version of "Physical." The song is now available to listen to, and let's just say it does not disappoint at all. It seems more like an Evan Dando cover since it's more than a little noisy and sloppy. Of course, that isn't meant as an insult at all, and you can tell Hatfield is having a blast covering one of her idol's most iconic songs. Plus, it features a mind blowing guitar solo that you don't always hear in Hatfield's music. 

You can watch the video for Juliana Hatfield's version of "Physical" below. Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John will be available April 13 via American Laundromat Records. A dollar from each album sold will benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Juliana Hatfield, check out her website.
