covers: part two

Part two of the covers series! This time: Songs You Didn't Know Were This Beautiful (or, Are You Sure the Record is on the Right Speed?)

I like depressing music. If it's slow and in A minor, it's probably in my regular rotation. So when people take raucous songs and slow them down, I'm all over it. "Thriller" as a ballad? "My Humps" as a dirge? Yay!

mp3: "Thriller" – originally by Michael Jackson, covered by Ben Gibbard
mp3: "Float On" – originally by Modest Mouse, covered by Ben Lee
mp3: "Cry Me a River" – originally by Justin Timberlake, covered by the New Amsterdams
mp3: "My Humps" – originally by the Black Eyed Peas (?), covered by Alanis Morrisette
