I heard the strangest sounding tune on radio today. It was an offbeat version of an old song that was sung so offbeatedly that I couldn’t put my finger to it, even though I was singing along as my subconscious knew the lyrics. It’s almost like trying to think of one song when another song is playing. After that, I tried humming the tune to Soundhound to figure out the title but I must have been humming as tunelessly as the remix on radio. A quick google of one or two phrases turned up Womack & Womack. But then I realised it was the Elton John version that I remembered so well.
Womack & Womack (1988)
Elton John & KD Lang (1993)
Love Station (1998)
I love The XX but there are some songs they shouldn’t touch.
