Black Kids Cover Sophie B. Hawkins

Ever wonder what Robert Smith would sound like covering “Damn, I Wish I Was You Lover”? No? Good, because the Black Kids version is more redolent of vintage Hot Hot Heat during its yowling chorus. We’ve been relatively good to Black Kids so far, but “damn” is the only word worth singing along to here (via Vulture). Let’s hope they’ll follow the homage to it’s logical conclusion and make a video that features Sophie’s soft-lit, slow-mo diaper-chic erotic dancing, only with the addition of powdered wigs. OK, let’s not hope that.
