This week’s cover takes on one of my all time favorites, which recently made an appearance here:
Now, maybe it’s the fact that I had Cure albums in such heavy rotation in the 80s that I wore through multiple tapes, but I’m not really one for covers of their work (and lord knows they tried to milk it themselves, putting out number of crap albums with a half dozen remixes of the same song). But this – and I cringe to even name him – this Ben Folds cover, I really dig. And it’s not the vocals. In fact, it’s probably in spite of the vocals.
