Tagged: Natalie Imbruglia


First released (as “Brændt [Burnt]”) by Lis Sørensen (1993).
Also recorded by Ednaswap (1995 | 1997).
Hit version by Natalie Imbruglia (US #1/UK #2/CAN #1/BE #1/SWE #1 1997).

From the wiki: “‘Torn’ was written by Scott Cutler, Anne Preven, and Phil Thornalley during a demo session in 1993 before Ednaswap was formed. This song has been covered a surprising number of times, considering that it was written by a nearly unknown alternative rock band. The first recorded version of the song was, in 1993, a translation by Danish singer Lis Sørensen, ‘Brændt’ (which translates to ‘Burnt’ in English). Stylistically, Sørensen’s 1993 version is very close to Natalie Imbruglia’s 1997 version, most likely because (as co-writer Preven has said in an interview) the early Ednaswap demo [not available] was almost exactly like Imbruglia’s version.
