Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, has gifted us with a "dirge" cover of the legendary theme song for The Golden Girls, "Thank You For Being A Friend."
The instrumental, ambient track is packed with ghostly synths, and reverb, and had Clark not put a title to it, you'd assume it was a soundtrack to a horror movie.
So, basically, it's perfect.
Play it, and picture Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia eating cheesecake in slow motion at dusk, with no lights on in their sprawling home.
