montt mardié - highschool drama

Hey dudes - did you miss this amazing bit of twee soul from Montt Mardié when it came out a couple years ago? I love the insane falsetto and the huge hooks. Reminds me in a strange way of Dexy's but with one of the Chipmunks (maybe Theodore or Simon, but certainly not Alvin) on vocals.

And this simply has to be the twee-est Motown cover ever. I mean, Smokey Robinson is pretty darn precious but Mardié mows him down like a marshmallow shot from a cannon on this solo rendition of "I Second That Emotion".
