Lee Hazlewood's Sand is famous in the Nancy Sinatra version. Einstürzende Neubauten (the band of -amongst others- Bad Seed Blixa Bargeld) covered it, and here it is in a cover by a Convertino/Burns/Gelb sideproject (OP8), with vocal assistance of Lisa Germano.
What they've done to this song, is really beyond belief. They make it turn and twist around the legs (listen to that violin), they make it whisper and moan, they make it sound like a hot summer evening, they make you expect someone jumping out of the box any moment now...
Enjoy it :
