Was I surprised? Yeah. Was I surprised? No, not at all.

  • Richie Stephens "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (Beatles cover)
    Former member of Soul II Soul's R&B/Slow-Jam/Contemporary Gospel take on the Beatles. So ... bad. Seriously, right now this is No. 1 on the list of songs I'm certain will play on an endless loop when I'm in hell.

  • Jason Falkner "Pretty Ballerina" (Left Banke cover)
    Man, I love the Left Banke. This is my favorite of their songs and has quintessential psychedelic lyrics that make you question what in the hell this guy is talking about. Was the ballerina real? Was she just a dream? Just take another hit and it will all become clear.

    Likewise, I love Jason Falkner—even though he's a shapeshifter. By that I mean that, in some pictures, I find him stunningly attractive and in others quite abhorrent. Other than that, Jason as a one-man powerpop band is pretty damned brilliant.
