Ok, peoples. I have heard a lot of cover songs in my day ranging from the great (Type O Negative‘s cover of Seals and Crofts Summer Breeze) to the purely terrible (Godsmack’s cover of Mountain’s Mississippi Queen). I honestly thought that no cover could possibly be better than Type O Negative’s Summer Breeze or Green Jelly‘s Anarchy in the UK. I have been proven wrong by a band I have never heard prior ( I had heard of them, though, just never heard anything they had done).
This and the Mommas and the Papas California Dreamin’ are two of the creepiest songs I have ever heard. I think Bobaflex payed tribute to Simon and Garfunkel while updating a classic song for a new generation. This is simply a stellar cover. What do you think?
Check out Loudwire, where I learned about this.
