Good Cover Version: Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White Do The Velvet Underground

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.

I've been a fan of "Sunday Morning" for a pretty long time, and consider it pretty sacred. But along came Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White, with their exuberant, undeniable technicolor rendition in the key of "Mr. Blue Sky" (though perhaps not quite as rampantly pop tarty). Part of their forthcoming duets record full of covers, their treatment of this Velvet Underground classic should put a spring in your step.
