I love the Internet - it has made my life richer, it has found me friends, it has put me into in-real-life conversations with my heroes... and it has people on YouTube doing covers (I've expressed a love of this once before on this blog).

Whereas the proper band's Galaxie 500 cover of choice seems to be Tugboat, the webcam-soloist seems to opt for Strange...

I came across danandkitty's cover of Strange on YouTube earlier in the week - and it's one of the most lovably sweet covers I've heard - just a man and his ukulele and his (clear) love of music -it is beautiful

I'm also rather partial to this cheesy synthesizer instrumental cover

And here's Galaxie 500... and a kazoo
