Sparrow & The Workshop: Just What I Needed

      1. Just What I Needed


If you’re going to cover The Cars, you better know what expectations go hand-in-hand with that lofty venture. Sparrow & The Workshop were well aware. The 3-piece Scottish band transformed a 1980’s classic rock gem into a soft, acoustic love song. The cover choice makes sense since their typical sound ranges from Jefferson Airplane to Talking Heads to Black Sabbath. The sweet, liquid vocal harmonies feel so good that you forget it isn’t the original. And the whistle completes its feel good nature. It’s just what the song needed after a few decades of marination. Now all that’s needed is your stamp of approval.
