Why do we like this?

This track is officially being touted as "Kuma - Falling For Somebody New," but one click of the play button and you'll quickly recognize this as originally by Arctic Monkeys.

I've ranted about this before, but I find Kuma's new cover to be a particularly egregious case. Not only has the song title been changed, but there is literally no attribution for the original artist. The end result is nothing short of plagiarism in my eyes, and there's no way in hell I'm going to give it recognition as an "original."

Kuma, if you're reading this, feel free to share your thoughts.

Putting aside that rant, the cover itself is actually pretty catchy -- so much so that I think it deserves Song of the Day. Its only shortcoming musically? The transition to the slowed-down finale sounds too much like a completely different song, which pretty much throws me off every time.
