The Ghost Town Presents Ghosttown
Ahh, this is a really new cover and I discovered it a while back and was gonna wait to post it. I think my laziness (which is due to me moving and a million other things happening) decries that this is the perfect time.
This cover is by the Hot 8 Brass Band who also have an amazing cover of sexual healing. The original is by the Specials and is a classic song. You might remember it from Shaun of the Dead when Shaun awakes hungover as zombies are staggering across the city although he doesn't notice.
Anyways, this slow squirmy song is a pretty good selection for a version done by a New Orleans Brass band. They seem to be good at making things sneak and crawl smoothly.
