5 O'Clock Shadow | The Smiths/Twin Shadow

Click to enlarge

When it comes to The Smiths, its hard to beat the original. Especially on their 1992 released track "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". That's why when Twin Shadow covers it, he doesn't try to beat it but rather re-invent it. George Lewis Jr. gives it a synth-laden, darker R&B approach---a sound that is very popular currently. This cover does a great job of paying tribute to a classic track without trying to "top it". Listen to both below.
