The Friday OT: The Stranglers; Walk on by

On Tuesday I read that this track had been voted the third best cover version ever in some poll or other. The memory surge was strong, having bought the single and having played it to death once upon a time.


So off to the youtuber machine and...oh yeah, still a strong piece of music. Like the best covers, it takes the original song and goes in a different direction, leaving the original revered and respected. Great intro, top keyboards, just go for a stroll in the trees.
