#163 – The Kills Cover ‘Pale Blue Eyes’

This song has been on the internet for three days and it’s had coming on 40,000 hits. It’s no Rebecca Black, but pretty impressive nonetheless. The Kills have covered The Velvet Underground’s classic ‘Pale Blue Eyes’. It’s harsher, lacking the just-woke-up vibe that a lot of The Velvet Underground’s slower songs a slathered with, it’s good. Alison Mosshart’s vocals are predictably great, adding a little edginess where Lou Reed deal in a smooth, chocolate-coated delivery. Listen to the two below and compare them…
