Prick Tunes: Jose Gonzalez "Heartbeats"

There's something about the way that Jose Gonzalez covers a song that's arresting. The first time I heard his cover of Massive Attack's "Tear Drop" I listened to the whole song and couldn't figure out for the life of me what song it was despite the fact that I own Mezzanine and have watched every episode of House. His cover of The Knife's throwback tune "Heartbeats" is no different.

Here is the original:


Here's Jose Gonzalez's sincere take on the song, which I've been completely enamored with for years:

That cover makes me sleepy.

It was a song that I always heard when I lived in Scotland, but they never mentioned the name of the song or who was singing it. And then randomly one night after I moved back I was watching "Last Call with Carson Daly" and he had Jose Gonzalez on to sing "Heartbeats". Been a big fan ever since.
