Download a new song from The Spinto Band
While we wait for the release of the new album from The Spinto Band, you can listen to a new song they recorded for the recent remake of the movie Arthur. It’s a cover of “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” originally done by Christopher Cross. Sorry to say, the song didn’t make the cut of the final version of the movie. The band writes on their website: “Last year we recorded a cover of the theme music for Arthur. It is an Oscar winning-tune called Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do). We thought this song might be heard by Russell Brand and used in the remake of the classic, but we never heard back from Mr. Brand.” Now the band is offering the song to you for free in exchange for your e-mail below. The Spintos bring a more upbeat and sprightly approach to the song—say, if it was arranged by Harry Nilsson. Download the new version below and check out the original by Christopher Cross.
