Marilyn Monroe - One Silver Dollar (The Kills Cover)

Why do we like this?

When considering the life and career of the fabulous Marilyn Monroe, things become dramatically darker in retrospect. Her blonde beauty and bubbly, comedic on-screen persona seem tragic when compared to her off screen struggles and untimely death.

So it feels appropriate that a cover of "One Silver Dollar,"

from her 1954 film River of No Return, should have serious evidence of the dark side; who better than The Kills to bring out the macabre in Marilyn?

Alison Mosshart's spooky-sexy voice gives the track just the right amount of weight, without taking away from the sweet simplicity of the track.
