5 O'Clock Shadow 2-11-13: Don't Fear the Reaper

Click to enlarge

Today’s 5 O’Clock Shadow has a sufficient amount of cowbell. In fact, we have a double dose of it thanks to “Don’t Fear the Reaper” originally by Blue Oyster Cult and covered by Beautiful South.

An excellent cover song puts its own spin on the tune and Beautiful South perfectly exemplifies what makes a great tribute. They turn a moody, classic rock vibe into an almost danceable merengue track that is sure to turn heads and move hips.

Take a listen below!
