The original of Don't Let Our Youth Go To Waste by Modern Lovers, is not much of a song really. A two minute unaccompanied slice of Jonathan Richman half-talking, half singing, voice wobbling, pledging his attachment to an ideal as much as another human being, an anthem for everything he stood for somehow. The core of it is its emotional essence and its wonderful title. Galaxie 500 take both and turn it into one of the greatest, transformational cover versions ever recorded. A heart of darkness for the sensitive!
