The original recording is much better Who Can You Trust 1996

Saw them play live in Bristol uni circa 95/96.   Fantastic sound and possibly defined trip-hop along with Tricky and Portishead..

Another of the great bands that BG has turned me onto.

Maybe there's a vague resemblance in little bits of her vocal line, but I would hardly deem it "a rip-off".  We all hear different things, though.

One of their best, and always capable of lifting the mood UP...dig it:  The music that we hear here on RP!

True enough, but they're also explicitly political whereas Morcheeba's lyrics have rarely been contentious. I prefer Thievery Corporation for their eclecticism and agitprop, though Skye's voice is always smooth and pleasant to listen to.

I absolutely love Morcheeba!  
Some others you might dig are Massive Attack, Portishead, Bajka, Thievery Corporation.  

Some others that meet the "slick lounge-kool" but don't have the female vocals are Greyboy—Mastered the Art, The Jones Orchestra, Herbaliser (more on the Hip Hop side), Lobe, Pete Rock—Petestrumentals, Dzihan & Kamien, Omid, Groove Armada, Action Figure Party, Medeski, Martin & Wood.  These last ones I file under Hipstrumentazz.

No doubt some other listeners might disagree with such tangentialnesses, but I'm a lumper not a splitter and I dig what I dig!

Quite cool. I could stand to build an entire collection of nothing but slick lounge-kool bands like this with sultry power babe lead vocals; i.e. Shivaree, Venus Hum, Audreys, Zero 7, etc. Any other fitting suggestions?

A little spy-jazz, a little mid-century lounge swank; I love it.

Always like Morcheeba. This song has shades of Edwyn Collins, "A girl like you" – and that IS a good thing...

Morcheeba, awsome as always.
