Following up last week’s pick of The Smiths‘ “Girlfriend In A Coma”, this week’s pick if The Vitamin String Quartet‘s version of The Smiths‘ “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want”.
The Vitamin String Quartet have released an almost embarrassing amount of tribute CDs dedicated to various artists and bands, rearranging the songs as instrumental cello pieces. Some pieces don’t always work, and most of the tributes they’ve done are of bands and artists I’m not very keen on, but they’re generally pretty fun affairs if you’re familiar with the source material. This particular piece is pretty gorgeous, but then again it’s a pretty gorgeous song in and of itself.
I’m crossing my fingers for either a Hefner or The Mountain Goats tribute some day.
