When I learned that this cover happened, I knew I had to cover it. I don’t really listen to Darkstar or Wild Beasts, but when I saw that they covered what could be Paul McCartney‘s worst track ever, “Temporary Secretary”, I had to see how it turned out. (For those musically adventurous, feel free to listen to McCartney’s original track here.)
Hayden Thorpe, singer and instrumentalist of the indie-rock/pop band Wild Beasts joined forces with the electronic music group, Darkstar, and posted the song to Soundcloud two days ago. Keeping with the track’s original electronic sound, the artists have made a fair attempt at doing justice or repairing a song that is arguably flawed to begin with.
Make the jump to stream the track, and tell us what you think.
For more Darkstar you can purchase a CD here.
For more Wild Beasts you can purchase a CD or buy concert tickets here.
(Personal Statement: Paul McCartney is a music god, and even though I might bash this song, I am humbled by his musical presence, and know that I will most likely never make a song anywhere as close to as good as “Temporary Secretary”.)
