Then, it is followed by the saddest, most anguished moment on the album. An example of expert track sequencing.)

But the 1997 version of “Silver Springs” marks a triumphant return to form for its singer and band. At this stage of her career, her voice wraps around the melody in all the right ways. And she has the age and experience that give the performance the weight it deserves.
I can't agree with this. Granted THE DANCE "Silver Springs" has a real emotional heft to it - the "never get away! never get away!" is chilling - but the original is pretty damn good, particularly the choruses.

However good the original might be on paper, I’m not convinced by her vocal. I’m just not. All that changes with THE DANCE version, a miraculous gesture of strength and renewal.

I'm partial to the 6:08 slightly rough version on some of the remastered releases. The emotional commitment in that extended outro - wow.
