Trouble Man

Wherein there's only three things that's for sure

Neneh Cherry singing Marvin Gaye.

Absolutely love this version. Favorite way to listen is put on headphones, crank the volume way past comfortable and just let the crackle and sizzle wash over me. Kind of a crappy video, so just close your eyes and listen.

I have this from the 1995 tribute CD Inner City Blues: the Music of Marvin Gaye, a mostly, spetacularly bad collection of music. It includes the worst song Bono has ever sung, the worst song Madonna has ever butchered, and thirteen years later what Boyz II Men does to Let's Get it On still makes me insanely angry. There are a couple of acceptable tunes: Stevie Wonder, Sounds of Blackness, Digable Planets; but the only reason to buy the full CD is for Neneh Cherry.

Here's a live version that doesn't do as much for me.
