Ben Watt Folks Up Wang Chung

I have a weird soft spot in my heart for "Dance Hall Days" by Wang Chung. My first musical awakening was caused by the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City when I was in middle school when I discovered New Wave and the New Romantics (the second, more important awakening was Arcade Fire's Neon Bible which was my introduction to modern indie music). As part of A.V. Club's Undercover series, British artist Ben Watt of Everything But the Girl does a folksy, stripped down take of the 80s synthpop classic. And, though it makes no sense, I feel comfortable calling this one of the best covers the AV Club has ever managed to produce. Check it for yourself.
