Come On, Let’s Go! is the unexpected cover of the Ritchie Valens classic by Marianne Dissard, a French experimental country artist.
By Graeme Smith
Marianne’s version slows things down significantly. Breathy vocals and sax fill things with a seductive sultriness, dispensing with the clean energy of the Valens original. If you’re going to cover a classic, you need to put your own stamp on it and Marianne has done that in spades.
The accompanying video of vintage stock images drips with repressed sexual energy. Check it out below but, be warned, you’re going to need a cold shower after watching. Marianne has more music on the way in the form of an album set for a summer 2021 release.
