‘When I was your girlfriend, you always let me go’
This is my second post about Marina and The Diamonds in the past few days, but hey she’s great! Marina popped in to the folk at Live Lounge last week to perform some tracks from her new album, with her appearance including the customary Live Lounge cover.
Whilst I am not a fan of the original (sorry Beebs), I love this version. Marina brings to it the same level of sorrow-filled beauty she placed on her previous Live Lounge cover of 3OH!3’s Starstrukk – which if you haven’t heard yet you should really do yourself a favour and give it a listen now:
Her cover of Boyfriend spins the song completely on its head, taking the rapping out and putting a story of hurt and loss in; making it a completely different song about a completely different relationship.
