After I posted a commemorative video for They Might Be Giants Appreciation Day, my friend Jason linked a terrible cover of "Birdhouse In Your Soul" by Titus Andronicus to mess with me. My immediate feeling was an overwhelming desire to key their tour van. However, proving that good opportunities can come from bad, I skipped over to the Iron and Wine cover of "One More Try." I know Sam Beam isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I really do enjoy his unaffected style of singing.
[I'm waiting for one of the bands participating in the A.V. Club's Undercover 2011 project to say something valuable about why they chose the songs they did, instead of pretending like they hate music.]
