The Shirelles recorded one of the saddest pop songs in the history of American music, which Lykke fully comprehends. Her minimal piano version is heart-wrenching, stripped down to the very core of the track: forlorn uncertainty amidst the temporary bliss of a one-nighter. Damn. If you're at all depressed about love and/or currently drunk, you should probably not listen to this.
