#226 zee avi – first of the gang to die

i woke up this morning with my heart stolen away by zee avi‘s voice, with her acoustic rendition of “first of the gang to die”. while morrissey’s original wins you over instantly with its charm and his operatic delivery, zee’s version coaxes you affectionately but persuasively to love it by smoothening the song’s rough edges and rounding up its melody in a most endearing way. quite lovely indeed. – dan.
