"and why should I be lonely every night / when I can be with you, oh yes, you make it right"

If you've been hanging around here for any amount of time, you've probably picked up that I can be a bit of a cynical bastard. But this video of 17-year old Molly from Brookhaven covering Kirsty MacColl/Tracey Ullman's "They Don't Know" is one of the most beautiful and inspirational things I've seen in quite a while.

Good job, Molly. I'd buy a CD full of melancholy covers like this in a minute.
