Information

Originally an instrumental song by the 60's band, The Shadows. It was played for the first time in Luxembourg, 26 May 2007 before Time Is Running Out and appeared regularly on set lists on the BH+R Tour. It hasn't seen any appearances in future tours however.

The band recorded their cover version and it was featured on a CD curated by the band in the 13th June 2007 issue of NME. They used a mobile studio on their laptops, working overnight on their tour bus between shows on their 2007 European tour, before emailing it to NME.[1]

Video and audio

An amateur video recording of the first live performance of this cover can be found here.

Trivia

With attentive listening a theremin-like sound can be heard throughout.
