Fountains of Wayne vs. Dar Williams

Fountains of Wayne:

Simply terrific!

Dar Williams:

Another excellent version! This song seems to bring the best out of a musician.

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.
