We’re not even sure we can call it a cover because they’ve changed the title and the lyrics – and we’re really not sure why they brought Sherlock Holmes into the frame - but there’s no denying what this is. And it’s freaking nuts. Check out this 1970’s band from Germany, the most adorable Children of the Damned – aka Cindy & Bert and their cute pooch – and their version of Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.”
We don’t know why they did, or why someone – apparently Bert – changed the title and rewrote the lyrics, but we’re glad they did. And we’re also glad a Japanese band then covered it, although it might’ve been more fun if they’d translated the German lyrics to Japanese. Or maybe not. Check that out too.
and of course, if you want the real thing...
