Today, on a sunny afternoon in Greenwich Village, I was sharing a late brunch with a friend at the delightful Rockin’ Raw restaurant. For dessert we shared the Chocolate Ganache Pie, which is one of the great taste wonders of the world.
At some point, while we were happily chatting away over yummy pie and coffee, we both noticed that we were listening to a very familiar song. Except it was also unfamiliar.
We realized were were hearing an unfamiliar cover of the Rock and Roll classic “Lola”. But the tone was quite different — the beat was faster and more aggressive, and the lead singer was female.
My friend said she rather liked this version. “Maybe,” I suggested, “that’s because they got rid of the kinks.”
