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.
