Portuguese singer Carlos Bastos performs “Satisfaction” with all the longing and mourning of the fado style.
Bastos really really can’t get any satisfaction. At times sounding a bit like Bryan Ferry, Bastos takes the Stones classic and wrings every drop of desperation out of the tune.
The visuals are from Luciano Martino’s Italian mondo movie Naked Cities.
Number 10 in a series of soul crushing covers of classic rock tunes.
Thanks to folks at PC LinkDump for introducing me to the Jack Kevorkian of Portuguese pop music, Carlos Bastos.
Another song to slit your wrists to after the jump…
