Default I Would Do For You - covered

just heard a version of this wonderful song by the band Slightly Stoopid from the USA and must say they really did a good job covering this ub40 tune from 1988. They really captured the vibe of the song and the wonderfull bass/keyboard/bells sound that the song has. Did anyone else hear this version by Slightly Stoopid? What's your opinion on it?

I LOVE IT!!!

The bass line is so well done. There's something about his voice that is kind of like Ali's.

You're right Joris. Its a decent cover. To be honest I have never really heard a cover of the UBs. And its nice to hear!
