The original version of this Babe, Terror (that comma seriously trips us up) song is an appealingly ambient, seven-minute mega downer (in a good way). Memory Tapes' rework, on the other hand, transforms the entire thing into a sadness-tinged but still wildly bouncy track that sounds pretty much in no way like the original. Both are good, but one is chocolate ice cream and the other is running into your ex-girlfriend on the street and finding out she's dating your best friend (but luckily you're mostly over it and just feel weirdly chill about the whole thing but also kind of sad). There's also a video, which you can watch up above. It features a lot of people walking around places we wish we were.
