The Afghan Whigs "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" (The Police cover)
Published Aug 14, 2014With the Afghan Whigs set to start the next North American leg of their tour behind this year's Do to the Beast, the alt-rock outfit have unveiled a B-side from the same recording sessions. Though taking on the same brooding qualities as the LP, the loosie is a cover of giddy Police number "Everything She Does Is Magic."
Stripping away the sunshine of the Sting-sung original, the Whigs bring the tempo down and add cinematic string swipes and downcast acoustic guitar. Vocalist Greg Dulli, meanwhile, flips once-optimistic lines about a bewitching potential lifemate and takes them into a more lovelorn direction. Even on those "eeee-yooo-ohhhs." He's a master of heartbreak, that Dulli.
