KOOKY COVER: THE KOOKS TAKE ON ACE OF BASE’S ‘ALL THAT SHE WANTS’

One of my favorite groups, The Kooks, have covered one of the greatest pop acts of all time, Ace of Base, and all that they want, is for you to listen. It’s a fact everyone jams out to Ace of Base every once in awhile, right? Although The Kooks’ original music is always lasting and inventive, everyone likes a good cover.

This time around the band chose to smash up All That She Wants. Is it a seamless, letter-perfect rendition — an authentic execution of the original? No, but it exemplifies just how far you can twist a song from the original hit, while still maintaining the essence of Ace of Base. Perhaps you could say The Kooks put a distinctive personal stamp on it! The guitar riffs added in between the vocals make the song sound completely different, and well, a little kooky. A crisp rock twist to a quaint corny hit.
