You Only Live Once/Mercy Mercy Me (Single)
by The Strokes
Released: Oct 2006
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
The third single from the Strokes' First Impressions of Earth is much less raucous than the rest of the album, meandering along at an even-metered Ric Ocasek-like clip. The extra bonus track is a surprisingly spot-on cover of the Marvin Gaye classic, with Eddie Vedder joining Julian Casablancas on vocals and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme providing the Motown beats.
