As previously mentioned, I've been following the Undercover series at the AV Club
pretty avidly, and the one song I'd been most eager to hear (barring maybe "Game of Pricks," which Owen Pallett did a fine version of) is the Cure's "Inbetween Days." I'm not a big Cure fan except for the pop singles (basically, and minus "The Lovecats" and a few others); I'm one of those people who prefer their second-best of to their first. Given some of the other choices in the series I was a bit worried it'd be done by a band I dislike or don't care about (and thus become the opposite of the Retribution Gospel Choir covering "Kokomo," which was actually pretty good but I still don't like the original). Thankfully it turns out that we got Superchunk
instead, which makes me very happy. This is a band, after all, whose version of the Magnetic Fields' "100,000 Fireflies" might be my favourite cover (if it's not, it's close; My Bloody Valentine's cover of "Map Ref. 41°N 93°W" and Ben Folds' "Bitches Ain't Shit" are the only competition I can think of right now).
