Thanks for sharing

I love that song

And that version does it justice


There’s a video somewhere on YouTube of two old guys at a pizza restaurant doing it thst is amazing as well

Needs moar distortion!

It's really sweet till the chorus, but the guitar at that part is too overpowering relative to the rest of the song, IMO. (I'm listening on earbuds, so maybe that makes it worse.)

Agree on the distortion. Good cover though. I’d like to hear it on good phones instead of through a Bluetooth speaker.

Some guys bored on a ship doing a video. The funny part is I have been working commercial ships so long I can tell the position of each of the crew just from their appearance.

I like the guitar during the chorus. Only thing that really makes it distinguished from the original...

Not bad, but I prefer this guy's cover:

I generally like the often light hearted Weezer covers.
(Hit me baby one more time, Uptown Girl, Velouria)That one, I think if I were flipping through the dial quick, I might not have noticed it was a cover. Of course with that song, I wouldn't stop flipping either way.

Not an audiophile, obviously, but the bass was making my right eye twitch. Had to turn the volume lower than normal levels.

Here you go. Smile

And no, the beat-box guy isn’t really Jerry Seinfeld.

(I’ve had the pleasure of conducting this arrangement with a choir 3 times, and it brings the house down each time!!!)
