Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

    Oy. Maressey sounds he was rejected from the Golden Throats album tryouts, but decided to take a few singing lessons from William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy while he was there. I listened for 1:03 until I finally cried uncle and stopped the torture. Janice Whaley rendition sounds like it was recorded from her living room early in the morning as she tried not to wake all the other people in the house who were still sleeping. Solvents take this one easily.

    I went with Solvent. I think it was the most creative and I simply liked its “sound” more than the other two.

    I’m not the world’s biggest Smiths fan, and I never heard of Janice Whaley, but I’ll vote for her while she channels Bjork.

    Maressey sounds like really bad karaoke. I made it to 1:04, just to see if I could outlast Doug. Wasn’t easy. I thought the Solvents’ addition of a fiddle (violin, whatever) added a nice dimension to the song. But I gave it to Janice Whaley for sheer quirkiness. Why is the last mile the hardest mile, indeed?
