Todd Terje - Johnny and Mary (feat. Bryan Ferry)

I probably wouldn't have been familiar with this 8 months ago, but since I've been listening to a ton of 80's music at work, I am very acquainted with "Johnny and Mary" by Robert Palmer. I do like the catchiness of the original and its classic 80's sound. Songmeanings tells me that it's a critique of politicians and the shallowness of their misleadingly exciting lives. But, Todd Terje's recent cover of it with Bryan Ferry sonically takes it to a dark, dark place. Not sure if this will sit well with many of you, but I love this interpretation. It's brooding, it's haunting, it's fleeting. It's frackin' good.
