Simon & Garfunkle : Cecilia (COIN Cover)
Some songs never go out of fashion - old Gershwin and Irving Berlin standards, countless Beatles tunes, and some Katy Perry songs (mark my words all y'all naysayers Teenage Dream is one for the books) - that being said, those classic songs are so ingrained into the public consciousness that pulling off a cover is a.) pretty daunting and b.) most definitely impossible.
Well - COIN - the brilliant bastards who brought you the indie-pop gem 'Time Machine' a few months back are brilliant and ballsy enough to completely ignore all things daunting and impossible. They've taken Simon & Garfunkle's tune Cecilia and have given it a good old fashion kick in the arse. And don't tell Simon, but I kind of like COIN's version better. Don't tell Garfunkle either. Yeah, actually you know what- don't tell either of them. The last thing I need is two classic songwriters trying to strangle me.
Anyway, I'm gonna go reinforce my doors and fear my last moments with Paul & Art. Blame COIN.
