Re: The Crazy and the Young/even worse.

Yeah, I really agree with The Trick and even MOKB (that's a first!). The "Young Folks" cover is drab and boring. Try not to judge The Kooks based on this, though. Their last album was gold and their new album, although not terribly innovative in any way, is full of fun pop tunes.

Here they are redeeming themselves with a tune from Konk.

If you want to talk about a "shoulda known better" cover, listen to this abomination that The Constantines and Feist put out recently. Their cover of Kenny and Dolly's "Islands in the Stream" is unbearable! Blech.

So listen to it here... if you dare.

Interesting. That's the first time I've heard that cover. I have to admit, I don't hate it. They at least changed it up a bit and their voices sound nice together. But you're right, it's not really necessary by any stretch either.
