The Cardigans & Tom Jones - Burning Down the House
Today I was in the car and the 1983 Talking Heads song 'Burning Down the House' came on. Despite the commercial success hitting in the top 10 at the time, their song lives in my memory as the remake by The Cardigans and Tom Jones. Just to recap, the song is a late 90s pop hit featuring The Cardigans and Tom Jones and is as delightfully silly as it sounds. The swingy pop beat is infectious and Tom Jones brings his Vegas crooning in full effect.
Released as a single on Tom Jones' album 'Reload', the track came out in 1999. I haven't seen the video in over a decade and forgotten how wonderfully weird it is. I am pleased to share this odd throwback to you over 15 years later.
