The Streets Cover Elton John

This is maybe old news for some of you (it's been out for a few weeks), but we thought that it had sufficient novelty to merit a mention. UK hip-hop act The Streets have put together a cover of the Elton John classic "Your Song" for a charity compilation. The song is streaming over on myspace, and as a fan of both artists it was tough to pass up. It's a nice cover in that it doesn't shamelessly ape samples, but rather is an earnest heart-on-sleeve cover version. If you're a fan of some of the "sweeter" Mike Skinner moments, a la "Too Late", then you'll probably enjoy.
