Tahiti 80 Cover The Turtles

Let’s carry on with Stereogum’s Week Of A Thousand (Or Less) Covers™, shall we? French soul-pop band Tahiti 80 are on tour this month to support the American release of their third album Fosbury (out this week), and what better way to appeal to this nostalgia-loving nation than by covering that perennial soundtrack to memory-lane montages, “Happy Together”? The band released it on their US-only bonus EP, but you can get your listen on right here:

Tahiti 80 – “Happy Together” (MP3)

Reverent! Too reverent? Is a cover worth its salt if it doesn’t add some spice to the mix? Discuss among yourselves.
