  1. Gosh Brian,
    I love your show and you usually do a great job finding cool versions of cover songs. But the cover of Jessica by They Might Be Giants is so godawful that I had to turn the podcast off. It is SO BAD that it is not even cheesy funny bad. Let’s have some consideration for your audience next time please. THanks.

    • Hi Sal – I’m sorry you didn’t like it (and you hated it enough to not even listen to the remaining 15 songs of the show!). I absolutely get that not everyone is going to like every song I play. But in this case, I stand by my decision to include it. It’s a very fun version of a great song, where the cover is absolutely 100% in the style of the band doing the covering. And knowing that TMBG is popular among listeners to the show, I felt it was an easy decision to make it part of the episode.

      But that’s the beauty of the way I present the show, you can always fast-forward a few minutes to get to the next track if you don’t like the current one. And if you’re listening to the AAC version, it’s just a simple press of the “next” button!
