The Maccapeas

We’re well aware that this song was first aired way back in July (it’s October already!?), but we only heard it recently and can’t stop listening to it. Now, we all know that Jo Whiley is an unforgivable arse, but her ‘Live Lounge’ thing has produced some interesting cover versions. From little Will Young re-imaging ‘Hey Ya’ as a jazzy epic to Florence & The Machine tearing strips off of Beyoncé‘s ‘Halo’, there were moments when the artist really “made the songs their own”. For The Maccabees that song was ‘Boom Boom Pow’ by the Black Eyed Peas

Imagine if the Editors had tried this…awful, huh? The Maccabees don’t take it seriously, they have a bit of a giggle, but at the same time the beat and the guitar sounds are amazing and Orlando Weeks gives it his best, “Will.i.am drop the beat now”. The beat cover version since Robson & Jerome’s ‘Unchained Melody’ and we really mean that.
