Good Cover Version: Mexrrissey Does Morrissey

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

What could be better, on a Sunday, than a Spanish-language, mariachi cameoed cover of "Everyday is Like Sunday?" Mexrrissey does their best Moz impression here, and the nod and the wink to the Mozfather is a winner. The forlorn resignation is undercut with love, and I think this one will bring a bit of a smile to your face. Even on a Sunday like this one.
