I gotta be honest I probably wouldn't have put the original track on the turntable, but I also wouldn't have turned it off...
I can only imagine putting yourself out there as an artist must be one tough act to follow .... pardon the pun... Harder again, pulling off a cover of a track that swept the planet, went platinum... and since been listed on a Rolling Stone's top 100 songs of the Decade and furthermore their Top 500 songs of all time....
Yes... where talking about Alice Jayne ...and, oh yeah, that Gnarls Barkley guy with his track "Crazy"
I'm no writer, and to be honest, I seriously have the ability of a middle school-er, so thank fuck for spell correct as I mash away, but seriously - I love music in all shapes and sizes especially when it's a cover as cool as this...
Obviously the Americana flavours and Alice's amazing vocals caught my ear from the get go... But the reinvention and arrangement... just Wow!
Make sure you follow the links and check out the rest of the album, "Inside the Cover" as it definitely won't disappoint
