today I learned that the crash test dummies covered XTC's "The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead" and for some reason it made me very sad. I love that song, and to hear it covered just didn't work for me.

but I also learned that I've been wrong about a lyric for 29 years. I thought the song's lyrics were "any kind of love is love alright" which I kind of like more than the real lyric which is simply "any kind of love is alright"

I'll still sing the extra words when I'm driving.

Ever listened to the Primus album, "Miscellaneous Debris"?

Five cover songs including "Making Plans for Nigel", and they are all wonderful.
