Jonathan Coulton is someone who does a lot of quirky songs, including quirky covers. This one, however, is spot on and reverent. Accompanied by a who's who of session musician/songwriters - Jim Boggia (guitar), John Roderick (guitar), Christian Cassan (drums), Jon Spurney (keyboard) - and yes. That's Aimee Mann on bass and 2nd vocal - Coulton and his band give the Ric Ocasek classic its due.
And yes, this is because it's Scott's birthday and I absolutely remember that he saw Aimee Mann ten years ago Sunday, and also that today is his birthday.
