2nd Favorite Cover Song of 2010// Jonsi // Time to Pretend (MGMT)

December 19, 2010 — Leave a comment

This song will stay in the rotation for, well, ever. This is what I had to say back in April and it still stands:

“The beautiful cover was recorded for a BBC Radio Live session by Jonsi of Sigur Ros.  The slowed down lyrics, music, and Jonsi’s fucking amazing voice add a whole new dimension to the track.  While the original has the ability to bring on tired and shitty James Dean cliches, at the hands of the Icelandic siren, it becomes a gorgeous balloon popping reality reminder. Duplicitous song meaning lovers unite.”
