    Default Such Great Heights [covers]

    Im sure, or at least certainly hope you guys are acquainted with The Postal Service, well anywho, their most popular song by far has been Such Great Heights, and its been covered by just about every musical genre and its cousin. well.. my friend found this a few weeks back.. it was a metalcore take on the song.

    Cool, I hadn't been exposed to The Postal Service actually. But, if "they have to speculate," they seem like they may be my kind of peeps.

    I swear i have some other cover floating around my ipod, but can't think of by whom or if i'm just imagining things. (If so, probably some indie band that wouldn't even make the wiki page lol)

    ^ that one was interesting..
    she has an interesting voice.
    very opposite direction indeed :p

    heres a newer one that IMHO isnt very good at all.
    a ska band doing a cover of it.

    tomas' voice just doesnt do this song justice.
    neither do the brass instruments trying to replicate electronic beats.
    but it is catchy. hahaha

    Never heard this song before. I found it very boring.
    The cover was close to unbearable, although the bunch of ridiculous l'oréal-haired people in the video might be more than partly responsible.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    No, it's just an assessment of your type, since you have it listed as INxx and seem uncertain which one you are.
