I thought nobody could cover this track, especially Nouvelle Vague. I remember seeing Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging when I was fourteen and the only part of it that turned up the corners of my mouth was their shit 'Teenage Kicks' cover.
I admit I was sort of chuckling to myself knowing they'd covered this, but gosh I was mistaken, never mind me whilst I press the reply button.
For the fourth time.

When I graduate with honours in Music Journalism and the BBC finally realises how dismal the modern music industry has become, they're going to get me to host the re-vamp of this.
Ehh a girl can dream!

"Fairest Cordelia, that art most rich, being poor;
Most choice, forsaken; and most loved, despised!
Thee and thy virtues here I seize upon:
Be it lawful I take up what's cast away.
Gods, gods! 'tis strange that from their cold'st neglect
My love should kindle to inflamed respect.
Thy dowerless daughter, king, thrown to my chance,
Is queen of us, of ours, and our fair France:
Not all the dukes of waterish Burgundy
Can buy this unprized precious maid of me.
Bid them farewell, Cordelia, though unkind:
Thou losest here, a better where to find."The King of France, King Lear
