Cover Of The Week: Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Monophonics
Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) was originally by Cher back in 1966, then was covered by Nancy Sinatra the same year. The Nancy Sinatra version is the one that most people know thanks to its use in Kill Bill, but this one, by the Monophonics, might be my favorite. It manages to hold the somberness of the originals, but also while adding a cool funk feeling to it. It kind of turns it into a whole different beast, and I love that about it. I hope you enjoy it as well!
