Surprise success

Emiliana Torrini recently had an unexpected number one smash with the cheerily demented Jungle Drum. Granted, this chart feat happened in Germany, but when the gods of music smile on you, something, something, something, etc...

To capitalise on her success, the Icelandic söngvari has reswizzled the title track to her (excellent) album, Me and Armini. The song's gentle reggae lilt has been augmented with a jingly jangly funkatronic guitar "lick" and there is a drum machine that treads the line between jaunty and violently irritating.

The overall effect is not displeasing. Have a listen.

Emiliana Torrini - Me and Armini

And here, for good measure, is the original.
