🎵Bat for Lashes - Daniel: With the current popularity of the Cobra Kai series, it seems like an appropriate time to revisit Natasha Khan’s 2009 emotional tribute to the Karate Kid himself, Daniel LaRusso. I’m posting the live version from The Late Show here because I find the official video to be kind of creepy. Also, although Khan has reworked the arrangements for this song a few times, most of the live versions, including this one, feature the Seventeen Seconds guitar sounds much more prominently in the mix.
As a bonus, you get to hear David Letterman’s slightly charming little anecdote about how he almost made it to Khan’s hometown of Brighton.
Enjoy Khan’s passion for Daniel, but remember that Johnny Lawrence has a human side, too.
