2. I know what you mean.



I have some good memories associated with the original version. But I also like the way that Rumer has "re-styled" the vocals to sound more like she's singing an old "standard" tune rather than blue-eyed soul.

I guess, if you think about it... songs from 1976 are standards now, aren't they?
