Madonna intimately covers Elliott Smith’s “Between the Bars”: Watch

on November 10, 2017, 11:10am

Uploading late night Elliott Smith covers to the internet isn’t just the purview of broken-hearted college students; international pop icons who’ve sold over 300 million records like Madonna can apparently get in on the emo fun as well. Last night at 1:45 A.M., that’s just what Madge did when she uploaded a video to Twitter featuring her performing “her favorite song,” Elliot Smith’s “Between the Bars”, off of his masterful 1997 record Either/Or.

This isn’t the first time Madonna has performed the Smith classic—The Material Girl also covered the song as a part of her performance art piece and short film “secertprojectrevolution” back in 2013.

For more on the late, great Mr. Smith, watch the man himself performing an intimate version of the bittersweetly beautiful tune below.
