I was listening to other versions of this on Youtube and I was surprised to find that nearly every modern arrangement of this song sounds the same and, weirdly, not exactly like this. Is there really only one method for bringing old blues songs into contemporary times? I don’t believe it.
I do, however, believe this song deserves someone who can repopularize it and not make it sound like a bad Mama Cass cover.
And yet, I feel like the Mama Cass version manages to somehow avoid sounding like all the versions that sound like bad Mama Cass covers. I can’t really explain it. I’m just ready for someone to make this a dance hit.
<mildpityparty>It will not be me, though, because I fail at cool stuff. </mildpityparty>
