Moffat’s Got You!

Scotland’s own poet laureate miserablist Aidan John Moffat (formerly of Arab Strap and numerous other notable projects) takes on the Sonny & Cher lovey-dovey duet. Opting to do the song solo rather than a duet gives the song a new twist. With his poignant Scottish drawl it strips the song of its schmaltz and turns it into something quite harrowing and touching which is no mean feat. The cover is borderline uplifting till you find it was recorded and used in a movie where a guy eats the ashes of his departed wife (Paul Wright ‘Believe’).  Click on image below to listen to the track –
