Today I was shopping at H&M and this song came on. The voice was eerily familiar, as were the lyrics, but they didn’t belong together in my head and as a result I couldn’t place it. After asking the child cashing me out what the song was, and having him blink at me like I’d asked in the square root of PI, I whipped out my trusty Samsung S6 and Shazam’ed it (if you’re a music spaz like me, you’ll know what I mean – BEST APP EVER).
Feel Good Inc, made famous by the Gorillaz, and covered here by Skye, formerly of Morcheeba. The ethereal haunting vocals coupled with the slowed tempo of the track creates a definite contrast to the original. You won’t be jogging or jumping to this version, more like putting it on in the background of a candlelit dinner, or while reading by the fireplace. It’s soothing in its ambience and completely beautiful. I love it.
