OMD vs. The xx...

Never been a fan of cover versions and probably never will be. But from time to time a few interesting do come along and (my) childhood heroes OMD covering The xx certainly wasn’t something I saw coming. Isn’t the normal procedure that new upcoming bands cover songs by bands they’ve been influenced by? And not the other way round? But nice for a change! Although OMD has labeled it “rough mix”, their cover of VCR sounds like it could easily be a lost track from one of their recording sessions 30 years ago. Doesn't it?

kommer du fra danmark? Synes jeg har sett det en plass? I så fall prøver jeg å forklare hva jeg mente med "playmode" siden jeg ikke vet hva ordet for det er på norsk en gang!
Det jeg mente var hvordan får du til å lime inn den musikk avspillings programmet på bloggen? det programmet som du har for å kunne spille av denne sangen? skjønte du det nå, eller? heh
