Giraffage - Make You Love Me

Bonnie Raitt, is that u? In Giraffage's version of "Make You Love Me," he has taken the singer's biggest hit and given it a chill indie makeover. Modifications include pitched down vocals, a loop of the line "close to me," and tropical bird noises. Fuck yeah! Bird noises make me feel like I am in the rain forest instead of NYC in February. That description sounds like a clusterfuck, but the end result is pretty beautiful. It's melancholic, tranquil, and avoids the 90s-Lite-FM production of the original.*** Basically, Giraffage has revealed what Bonnie Raitt would sound like if she became a man and swallowed a bottle of Xanax. We love it.

***I mean, I enjoy "I Can't Make You Love Me" as much as the next person, but if you had to hear radio personality Delilah introduce it (please someone know what I'm talking about) approximately 7,100 times throughout the 90s, you would have PTSD too.
