Sir Tom Jones - I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys cover [Concert For Diana]


Celebrate St David's Day with the Welsh legend's cover of I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.

Today is St. David's Day, and to celebrate we've got a clip of Tom Jones doing a very unlikely cover of Arctic Monkey's I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor. 

Prepare yourself to see the Welsh legend transform the indie banger into a soulful leg tapper at the Diana Concert in 2007.

You're welcome.

And just in case the guitarist looks familiar, that's because Aerosmith's Joe Perry lent his hand(s) to proceedings, accompanying the Welsh crooner at the newly built Wembley Stadium.

It may be a lot slower and a lot more soulful than the original, but we reckon Sir Tom manages to do it justice in his own way.
