Our soft pop covers band is wanting to add a bossa nova beat to this slow "reggae" we've decided to add to our song list:


My first idea is, for me the drum set player, to add the straight bossa nova "clave" on a pedal cowbell.

Any other suggestions?

Oh, wow. I only know the They Might Be Giants version. Never thought it was a cover, as they don't usually cover other songs.
