    I can't believe this cover is 7 years old.. I like the original too, but I prefer this version more.

    What am I supposed to do? Ben Gibbard is a god who can do no wrong, but I really REALLY, really don't like the original song. I feel my brain frying trying to sort this out. Ouch!

    This was in the movie Wicker Park... which is terrible, just awful, so bad- but thankfully this song wasn't harmed in the filming of Josh Hartnett's sorry acting attempts.

    I like the original better, but this is great. Captures the song in a new way, like a cover should. [2]
