Weird Cover Wednesday: Something About You

This is not just a cover, it is a reclamation project.

Cary Brothers' sweet duet with Dutch-through-LA singer Laura Jensen of Level 42's "Something About You" is a revelation.  The familiarity of the song is not readily apparent.  The stripped-down cover brings this tune up from the saccharine depths 80s English pop to become a simple gem. 

Brothers, who is probably best known for his contribution to the Garden State soundtrack. included this tune on his enjoyable second album, Under Control, which was released this spring.  Fortunately, there is not a synth to found during the entire 3:46.
