Fortunately for Seal his cover of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long" does the fantastic original a fair amount of justice. It's simple, straightforward and not embellished with too many contemporary accents but still fresh enough that it's not an outright copy. The video is similarly uncomplicated, just Seal moving around in a decrepit room illuminated by some type of digital spotlighting and amid candelabras. It's definitely less cheesy than it sounds, and Seal sells the tortured lyrics pretty well. It's beautifully shot, and Seal looks as sophisticated as ever. It's a nice compliment to a good cover.
