When Sonic Youth surprised the whole world by pulling off the most amazing cover of a song by The Carpenters ever (I couldn't really fathom listening to any of the originals, to tell the truth), who would've thought what a big impact their version of 'Superstar' would have had. Still to this day, this songs is constantly referenced whenever people speak about Sonic Youth. Here's presenting one track with a similar vibe. 'Back to You' by Ummagma

There is also an Ummagma remix for a really cool Brazilian artist called Robsongs. You can get it as a free download here and enjoy the video here.

You may not care for the Carpenters' arrangements, but you have to give mad props to Karen's voice.

Now that I got that off my chest, I like the remix. ;)

She is indeed excellent Johnny... I love this song in particular (and the beginning just cracks me up)
