In Which I Yet Again Massacre an Innocent Song From the 80s

In my quest to ruin every 80s song with a glitchy, spooky, questionably sung cover version done in one take, here’s Depeche Mode’s “Somebody.” Yes, this is what I do with my Saturday nights when Krissy is out with friends. Enjoy.
(and if for some reason that’s not working for you, try this one:)
For comparison, the original:
Minor but: the play thing for your version doesn’t appear to work on my tiny iPhone (iOS latest, model 8)
And double checked with a different few browsers on the iOS device, doesn’t seem to help. Something something permissions or maybe I shouldn’t filk at 2 AM? :P
Could be worse. Imagine William Shatner covering it.
No song from the 80s is innocent – discuss ;) .
Actually…. It’s not bad. But I enjoy the fruits of your day job better.
I will not be giving up my day job, no.
@scalzi dunno, after you posted the second play link I kinda could be convinced you’ve got a future in post-anti-anti-post-punque ;)
