AlunaGeorge – “I Wanna Be Like You” (Jungle Book Cover)
In probably the silliest move they’ve yet made publicly, the British electro-soul duo AlunaGeorge recently covered “I Wanna Be Like You,” the song that Louis Prima sang about wanting man’s red fire in the 1967 Disney movie The Jungle Book, during a BBC Radio 1 session. The cover is an entirely goofy enterprise all around, what with the whistling and the shooby-doo backing vocals and all. But it also does a nice job showcasing the icy poise of Aluna Francis’s voice. Listen to a radio rip below.
AlunaGeorge’s debut album Body Music is out 7/1 on Island.
