The Darkness’ “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” Gets a Lively Jazz Cover

Back in 2003, British band The Darkness climbed the charts with a number of upbeat, throwback rock songs, the catchiest of which was “I Believe in a Thing Called Love.” Now, over a decade later, the folks at Postmodern Jukebox have given the song a jazzy twist, replacing the tune’s ’80s-glam-rock sound with some brassy arrangement and a rich, luxuriant vocal by Maiya Sykes.

As usual, the result is an excellent, unexpected spin on an old favorite. Enjoy.
