This popped up in my inbox a while ago and I immediately made a note to post about it. I then proceeded to… not post anything for months? I dunno, I don’t really have a good excuse! Thankfully, time has not dulled how much I all am up in its delicious jam.
I am not one to like radically reimagined versions of classic tunes (sorry Lorde, it just ain’t baking my cookies), but something about this one stuck: it’s remarkably simple, but quite powerful, owing to STACEY’s bittersweet vocals. It’s very far removed from the perkiness of the Foundations original, but it’s pretty danged interesting how the lyrics take on a completely different intent in this version!
