With or Without You

One of U2's best known songs redone as a gothic dirge? Sure, why not.

I like this a lot but I'm not actually sure it works. But what is undeniably impressive is how thoroughly Lee has put her own stamp on this iconic tune, keeping virtually nothing of the original arrangement. For a song as entrenched in pop culture as this one, that's no mean feat.

(I especially dig the "On a Plain" vocals at the end.)
