LISTEN: The Kills Take On Marilyn Monroe’s “One Silver Dollar”

Music / August 4, 2011

British twosome, The Kills, have recorded a somewhat unexpected and brilliant cover of Marilyn Monroe’s “One Silver Dollar”.

The track, originally sung by Monroe on the 1954 film “River of No Return”, has lost its innocence with Mosshart’s gritty take.

Its undeniable that Monroe’s breathy, sultry ditty has become darker, yet it loses none of its charm.
