Boomkat Product Review:
Enigmatic crooner Herb Diamante joins forces with Alan Bishop and co. for a bizarre and brilliant cover of Bobby Vinton's 1964 classic. `Despite the inevitable comedy value of Diamante's thick, nanny-goat vibrato, this is a rather splendid rendition, delivered with Antony & The Johnsons-style cabaret torch song sincerity, backed by lavish strings. In the weirdness stakes its probably right up there with Akon's bafflingly hideous version and Kim Jong-Il's Team America re-boot of the song, but there's somehow more to this than mere novelty value alone. The B-side is an altogether shadier affair, featuring Diamante joined by Diatric Puds for a creepy, Scott Walker-style experimental ballad. Ace.
