Noisettes Drop a Cover of a Killers Classic

It’s not often that a song makes it directly from my email inbox onto a post in one day, but occasionally a song drifts along and forces me to pass it on.  This morning I got a cover of the Killers track When You Were Young as it is reinterpreted by the Noisettes in an in studio live performance across the pond in the UK.  I edited the track a bit so all you get is the music {not the intro and outro} and I put it into stereo as I always think it sounds a bit better than when tracks are presented in mono.  Enjoy the music, enjoy your weekend.

mp3 : Noisettes – When You Were Young (Killers Cover in the Live Lounge)

While I’m not a huge fan of changing the lyrics to make a cover I’m choosing to overlook that small detail in favor of the original quality of this track.  The bridge is delightful.  Wait for it.

  1. noticed the lack of posts for the past few days.
    maybe it’s because you still haven’t given the mountain goats album, heretic pride,from last year a spin?


  2. The bridge satisfies, but on the whole this is a regrettably forgettable cover, imo. It’s limp, just does no service to the original. It’s good when a cover sounds notably different, but this isn’t in a good way. Maybe faulting it because I’ve actually been listening to the original a lot recently. But, oy. I hate it when words are changed up too. It’s distracting here.
