Turn Up The Volume: Cover Of The Week

Toyah and Robert Fripp bring us fun, hilarity and music every Sunday for more than two years now from their kitchen with covers of pop & rock classics.

It’s not that they weren’t already famous before the Covid-19 lockdown started.

Recently T & R recorded their cover of that soulful pearl, fully orchestrated, as a new Toyah single, and shared an accompanying video so you can join sexy Toyah for a little dance to this sensuous interpretation with her seductive posh pop voice as the star in the middle and the trippy guitars of King Robert and Simon Darlow on the sides, left and right. They’re rhythm slaves to Toyah.
