Norah Jones - "Ocean of Noise" (Arcade Fire Cover)

Some apparently consider the original "Ocean of Noise" very "boring" yet "one of Arcade Fire's most melodic tunes".

How you feel about the first "Ocean of Noise", from the group's 2007 Neon Bible, may well color your opinion of Norah Jones' live cover of the song. Jones' band seems to have wandered in from a recording session for Chris Isaak's Baja Sessions. Granted, that album was released in 1996, but it could be some sort of Journeyman deal. So Jones is singing the right words, but to the wrong music, and inevitably not in quite the right way.
