How To Do a Cover Version

I’ll be brief.

Today’s lesson: pick a little known song (the original is lifted from a 4-track EP which was the only thing released by the original power-pop band), make it the opening track on your era-defining album, release it as a single, and sit back and watch as no-one realises it’s a cover version.

In other words, totally fucking own it.
