Mr. Little Jeans – The Suburbs (Arcade Fire cover)

I just added this song into my iTunes yesterday and loved it instantly, and I was even happier to discover this morning that the music video just made its way online. This song does everything that a great cover should: it sounds completely different from the original while still having enough elements of the original that if you heard it for the first time and didn’t know what it was, you would have that nagging feeling in the back of your head that you’d heard this song before. Plus it sounds just as great as the original Arcade Fire song, although I have to admit I do like this version better. Dark, ominous synths, soulful vocals, late-late night club beats. I loved it the instant I heard it.
