Tom: This is one of the most covered songs in history. It is a Standard. Elvis codified it. UB40 made it reggae-pop. A-Teens made it teen-pop, but perhaps that’s better forgotten. Ravers Choice rewrote the lyrics and turned it into a happy hardcore classic.
Tim: You know, I had a listen to the A-Teens cover so I could try to comedically defend it. But no, I really can’t. I will happily take that Ravers Choice version, though.
Tom: And Zayn…
Tom: Zayn can, quite frankly, do one.
Tim: Yeah – and I’m suddenly thinking quite favourably about A-Teens.
