    Oh ok.

    And yeah, I heard the original, it's the one I found boring. I aknowledge that my taste aren't universal, but I am having a really hard time understanding what made this song so popular.

    It's ~3 minutes long and has a repetitive melodic hook that gets stuck in people's heads and makes them want to hear it again.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The ska version was the most bearable of the covers.

    The original is pretty good. It reminds me of Radiohead, apart from the singer's voice. I like the video and the fact that they were in a semiconductor fab. Though as someone before me has mentioned, "I can't believe she just grabbed that wafer with her fingers!"

    Many A Cappella groups have done the song, but I found this group to be the most entertaining overall... what with the dance moves and all.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it
