Song of the Day: Norah Jones Covers the Arcade Fire

Norah Jones bores me sometimes, and cover songs are often unimaginative, but this recording of Norah covering the Arcade Fire's "Ocean of Noise" (via The Music Slut) is neither boring nor unimaginative.

In this live version, from the Sopot International Song Competition in Poland, Jones's stunning voice adds a sad, ethereal quality to the already haunting song. Woven together with a bold bass and a twangy guitar, it's more sultry than jazzy and a departure from Jones's usual sound.

Judging by the crowd response, there isn't much overlap in the Arcade Fire and Norah Jones fan bases. When she says, "it's a song by a cool band called Arcade Fire. I don't know if you guys know them or like them...," the crowd doesn't make a peep. But I know you guys like the Arcade Fire, and I think you'll love this. To listen,
