Cathy Dennis - "Too Many Walls"

As I continue to digest Sleigh Bells' Reign of Terror, I saw that Spin talked to the band about their musical inspirations for the album. The magazine put together a virtual mixtape of the songs the duo mentioned, including Belinda Carlisle's "Mad About You," Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love" and George Michael's "Father Figure," which, you may remember, I quite love.

Also on their mix: "Too Many Walls" from Cathy Dennis. "Wore this cassingle out when I was maybe 11 or so," Sleigh Bells guitarist Derek Miller told Spin about the song. "Hands down one of my favorite songs. Great snare and string arrangement." I haven't heard the song in forever. I bet you haven't either -- so here it is.
