the alt/goth cover - this mortal coilThis Mortal Coil - Kangaroo. I got album 'It'll end in tears' from my ex boyfriend. Two weeks after we weren't together already. He was an audiophile and still tortured me with this song. This Mortal Coils album I only bought because I needed to have their version of "Song to the Siren" This cover was the first song and to be honest i used to skip it automatically but I heard the string part (1:54 - 2:28 ) one nite on e and it changed everything.
