Oh, how my tenuous heartstrings are pulled by this beautiful, stripped down cover!
Lykke Li, who sultrily snarled her way through a pack of sex-laden tracks on her most recent album Wounded Rhymes, delves into her sweet side in the live performance. Li, plus an acoustic guitar, make for a tender but raw take on the classic Righteous Brothers’ tune — yes, my heartstrings are pulled taut, and so is the wavering quality of her voice.
I’ve listened to this track a few times on repeat already; I have a feeling it’s going to get quite a lot more airtime over the next few weeks.
