Product Description

The Day After Yesterday is an album of 13 cover tunes that have influenced Rick throughout his career. From Foreigner's 'Waiting For A Girl Like You' to John Lennon's 'Imagine', Rick has given new life to these already classic songs. DKE. 2005.

Amazon.com

Onetime working-class dog Rick Springfield has kept his nose to the grindstone since his early-80s "Jessie's Girl"/"General Hospital"/Tiger Beat-centerfold heyday. It seems as though he's realized he's making as big of a dent in the national consciousness as former co-stars Luke and Laura. Thus The Day After Yesterday, a disc of covers that, despite Springfield's raspy best efforts, communicates a certain last-ditch desperation. "I wanted to see if it would be easier and less painful doing a CD of songs I hadn't written ... and it was," Springfield writes in the album's liner notes. The trouble is, that ease devolved audibly into disillusionment: his song choices couldn't be less interesting and his delivery lacks soul, if not grit. Longtime fans, however, may want to soldier on. Springfield's reading of Foreigner's "Waiting for a Girl Like You" may be snoozy, but the original wasn't exactly a thrill ride either. The same goes for Human League's pleasantly humdrum "Human." In a split second of boldness, Springfield closes the disc with a palatable, clear-eyed cover of "Imagine." It's a song about possibilities, and mixed with a healthy shot of inspiration, its message should serve the artist better next go-round. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

It's a great CD and worth checking out if you were a Rick Springfield fan in the 80's.
Dorrie Wheeler
I am a die hard Rick Springfield fan from way back, and I am thoroughly loving this current release of cover songs.
Ice Princess
I'd hate to see someone buy this as their introduction to Rick and come away thinking he isn't all that good.)

Format: Audio CD
I'm not sure I understand all of the opposition to this album, especially the criticisms that Springfield has gone "easy listening." Sure, Springfield rocked in the 80s, but I've been hearing his songs played on adult "soft rock" radio stations for years; this certainly isn't the first time that he has been mellow. I admit, his voice has become weaker and more raspy-sounding, but hey, most of his fans are middle-aged now too, right?

I thought Springfield did a nice job with some 80s one-hit wonders, including "I'm Not in Love," "Life in a Northern Town," and "Broken Wings," all of which were at least as good as the original versions. Of course, he couldn't quite live up to John Lennon on "Imagine," but still, this was a decent interpretation. However, I think I most enjoyed the songs that I did not personally recognize, including "Miss You Nights" and "Blue Rose." Overall, I'm happy I bought this album, and I remain a loyal Springfield fan.

I'm not going to try and apologize or rationalize my opinion here. I've read the other reviews, and I think it needs to be said that this cd flat sucks. It's like bad kareoke. It's purely awful. Period.I'm not a Rick-basher. I have everything he's released since "Wait for Night". He's one of my all time favorites, but this is the worst thing he's done that I can remember.Why would he choose these songs to cover. Songs that he supposedly wishes he'd written? Why? At the time that most of these songs were coming out, he was doing stuff far superior to them. It's like Joe Montana saying he wished he could've played as well as Jim McMahon.The instrumentation doesn't deviate from the originals in any notable way, other than sounding completely flat and soulless. Rick's voice sounds so weak, also. Worst is the cover of "Broken Wings" by Mr. Mister, where he sings a duet with Richard Page and gets completely shown up vocally.I hate to post this, I really do. But I feel that Rick Springfield fans with some degree of objectivity about themselves must be warned. DON'T buy this thing. Save it for when he puts out a new cd of original songs that better showcase his strengths as a musician. This one showcases his weaknesses, in spectacular fashion.His last two cd's, "Karma" and "Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance were great, but this is a stinker. Beware.

I was thrilled to hear Rick's renditions of these great songs in which some I have never ever heard anyone cover. Some great songs such as "Broken Wings", "Human" and "I'm Not in Love" are covered with great modern production. It's a cd that you can sit back, listen, and relax. Rick's voice is top-notch and his recordings just keep getting better.

As with the previous poster, I wasn't anticipating a remake of old songs as much as I would a CD of original material. That makes this CD all the more enjoyable. ANYONE would love this CD -- Springfield fan or not. It has a great sound, easy to listen to, great new interpretations of songs you will recognize. Rick has put together a great set of songs and he sounds amazing. The CD is soulful and intimate and a good reason to revisit these great songs.

If you are looking to relive some favorite tunes from the past, "The Day After Yesterday" by Rick Springfield is a good one!!! However, if you are looking for "Jessie's Girl" and "Don't Talk to Strangers," this one is NOT for you. Although this offering differs greatly from much of Springfield's most popular tunes, I like it!!! As a fan rediscovering Rick, I appreciate what his mature voice lends to each cut. This album helps to confirm my belief that musicians (just like everyone else) should change and grow, take divergent paths, explore, rediscovery, etc. and not stay the same - play the same tunes in the same old way.

Rick's last album, "Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance," contains many raw and hard-hitting tracks. This one does not. Take it for what it is - he is not selling it as anything but songs that he wished he had written. I appreciate the various offerings by an artist over his/her career span (buy this one and "Anthology -Written in Rock" released in 2005 and "Karma" in 1999 to see what I mean).

Rick Springfield won a ton of fans in the 1980's with hit songs "Jessie's Girl," "Don't Talk To Strangers," and "What Kind of Fool Am I." Rick also won fans with his acting skills. In the early 80's he had a recurring role on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. Rick is set to reprise his role as Dr. Noah Drake starting December 2nd.

Rick's latest CD The Day After Yesterday is a really wonderful piece of music. The 14 song disc is comprised of covers of songs that inspired Rick throughout his career. The Day After Yesterday is a pretty safe CD for Rick, as a good number of the songs are popular 80's hits that his fan base will recognize. At first listen, it's clear that Ricks voice has changed a great deal since his early 80's hits. His voice is still strong but it is quite raspy at times. Rick does a great job on The Human League classic "Human," which isn't very different than the original and he also nails the Mr. Mr. classic "Broken Wings." One thing that is rather disappointing about the CD is that Rick didn't really cover any fast up-tempo songs. It would have really been great to see him cover a real rocked out song like Bon Jovi's "Living On A Prayer." It's a safe CD and fans old and new should be pleased with this easy listening rock album. The CD closes with Rick's take on the Beatles classic "Imagine." His voice sounds so different than it did twenty years ago, and it's very clear on this song. Yes, time changes but many 80's artists like Bryan Adams, Simon LeBon and Billy Idol maintain a voice quite similar to their "80's" voice. Rick's voice is almost unrecognizable at times. Had this reviewer heard his version of "Imagine" she would have never guessed it was Rick Springfield. It's a great CD and worth checking out if you were a Rick Springfield fan in the 80's.
