Burning Down the House

There hasn’t been enough Tom Jones on this blog this year so let’s go back to 1999 when he recorded a version of Talking Heads’ Burning Down the House with Swedish rock band The Cardigans.

The song was recorded for Jones’ album of collaborations, Reload and, in common with the other tracks on the album, the recording was made with the collaborators’ choice of producer and studios. Tn this case Tore Johansson and Tambourine Studios in Malmö, Sweden.

The track was released as the lead single from the album and was a huge hit across Europe and beyond.

  1. Loved this track. And the album actually. Saw him at the Reading festival performing the track he did with the Stereophonics that year. Highlight of the whole weekend (and there were some great acts that year)

    1. It’s a great song.

      I hadn’t really been aware of Reload until recently but I certainly intend to check out some of the other songs because he has collaborated with some superb bands on there.
