Haven't I Heard That Before? #1: The Ronettes & Bat for Lashes

This is the first in a series that I hope I will be able to keep adding to over time...two songs that are related to each other in some way...oftentimes one is older and the other one is giving a "tip-of-the-hat" to the older song...This is certainly the case with Bat for Lashes song about a love that is ending "What's A Girl To Do?" to one of the best love songs ever...the similarities last only for a few seconds but they speak volumes I believe...

The Ronettes -- Be My Baby
This can be found on the Back to Mono collection.

Bat for Lashes -- What's A Girl To Do?
