MP3 OF THE WEEK: Hot Club De Paris – You Can Call Me Al mp3

“I need a photo-opportunity, I want a shot at redemption, don’t want to end up a cartoon, in a cartoon graveyard”

As much as I adore the Paul Simon classic ‘You Can Call Me Al’, I realise I’ve never really listened to the lyrics. Now thanks to this spirited cover by Hot Club De Paris I have, and they are bloody good. It’s testament to Hot Club De Paris that they can take a perfect Pop-Production like ‘You Can Call Me Al’ and remake it in an Indie-Punk-Funk style and still retain all the magic. This beats The Futureheads’ cover of Kate Bush any day.
