CARA SALIMANDO - NOTHING'S GONNA TO HURT YOU BABY (CIGARETTES AFTER SEX COVER)
When Cara Salimando decided to cover the ever-so-sultry and always steamy Cigarettes After Sex last month, I thought: “NAILED IT!!” -- Because she turned the under-the-covers anthem, “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby,” into a 1980s daydream. In fact, I bet Cara’s voice perfectly aligns with the ending scene to The Breakfast Club. Don’t believe me? Stream/download the single and try it. #Illuminati
“Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” under Cara’s mystical talent has a distinct aesthetic that pays homage to the surrounding atmosphere behind Cigarettes After Sex, but is still genuinely hers. Louder; brighter, Cara manages to encapsulate the agonizing but glorious feeling of falling in love. And her video for the cover song is finally here: Check it out below.
CARA SALIMANDO - NOTHING'S GONNA HURT YOU BABY
Okay, that might be a lie, but “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” plays out like a quiet night at your parents’, and your mom has had too much wine and pops in a videotape of their wedding reception. You’ve seen it a dozen times prior, but tonight you notice a scene where your parents share a cigarette in the background, and it’s then that your parents, and love, suddenly become relatable.
Doesn’t it just warm your heart???
Cara’s video is blissfully retro (and a little seductive and I don’t know why? Is it just me?), and Cara herself is just awesome if her tweets haven’t got you hooked. Watch her new video and then watch it again.
