Dean & Britta's "Random Rules" (Silver Jews cover) ... saw them perform this at a small show a few months ago and afterwards made a point to tell Mr. Wareham how great it was that they played that, thinking they did it as a one-off & not realizing until later that they'd released it on one of their albums, keeping intact my Ripken-esque streak of making jackass of myself w/my musical heroes

I'm annoyed by Fiona Apple, but her version of The Beatles' "Across the Universe" is a nice slow cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ5WPXxNzPU. Don't know what her and Johnny Cash's "Bridge over Troubled Water" cover is like.
