Pon der Ecke

I was in a pub last night where the two animated bar attendants were playing tracks to their customers straight off of Youtube. Over the din of the lo-fi pop that was pouring out of the speakers requests were being made. The spelling of band names and songs was clarified by notes on tissue paper passed over the bar, “Er heißt Frankie K-nuckles”. One of the many covers of “Teardrops” by Womack & Womack got dropped a couple of times, and it reminded me of what a great song the original was. It’s probably common knowledge, but the XX covered it recently, and much to my dismay, it’s great. Both the original and the XX cover can be found below:
