I've no idea what album it's on unfortunately, or indeed if it is officially released at all.

I think it wasn't released officially - but it is rather interesting for sure. I have it somewhere, this reminds me that I should find it and take a listen again.

death cab for cutie's this charming man is pretty good, just a shame they got so many of the words wrong, you can tell the changes aren't intentional.

I know theres nothing like the real thing but personally I love Jeff Buckley's live version of 'The Boy With A Thorn In His Side'. How about you?

Has anyone heard the cover of 'How Soon Is Now?' by a band called
'Afghan Whigs' ? Its kinda heavy rock, not the worst version I've heard.
Could probably put it on gmail if anyone wants.

STOP PRESS etc

I have heard the worst Smiths cover EVER. It's by a person called Mark Ronson, and it's called 'Stop Me', cause he's abbreviated the title and everything. It has a sort of lazy, near trip-hop beat, he sings like Craig David (for you Americans, imagine Usher singing underwater through his nose) and at the end turns it into The Supremes. Really. I wish I could find a link somewhere online for you to hear it, but the fact that I can't at least means this travesty hasn't spread too far yet. Or maybe it has - has anyone heard it?
