Another stunner from the vaults…

Successful covers take a song and reinvent it into a creation all their own. This 1960s Thai cover of ‘Hit the Road Jack’ owns its version. The lead singer, of the aptly named band, The Cat, howls out the English lyrics with the rawness of an alley cat. Though today, she’s got to be more of a cougar age.
