VickiKristinaBarcelona – ‘Cold Cold Ground’
“Cold Cold Ground” is VickiKristinaBarcelona’s new album, Pawn Shop Radio. From the band:
“Cold Cold Ground” is most definitely all about the groove. The beautiful lazy Calypso lilt of the original demands no less. We decided to move in the direction of an homage to 1960s girl groups; a hybrid of The Ronettes “Be My Baby” and The Marvelettes “Please Mister Postman,” with a nod to British Invasion riffs on guitar and banjo. As each verse has a distinct personality, it was natural for us to choose as a group song. We divided up the verses between us and included doo-wop inspired vocal improvisations on the choruses. Instead of accordion, the harmonica is featured in the solo section to maintain the rootsy reedy sweetness of Tom Waits’ recording.
