Song of the day: Buscemi / Bernthøler – My Suitor

A great cover of a great song: what more could one ask for? The case at hand is a song called My Suitor, a new wave classic originally released by Bernthøler in 1984 (it was love at first hear) and then covered in 2001 by the Belgian DJ Buscemi (aka Dirk Swartenbroekx) on his fabulous debut album Our Girl in Havana.

As the decision which of the two should be included here led to quite a bit of agony, I opted for the easy way out and present you both of them.

The original
