So I was listening to this streaming radio station the other day called Class of 1998 Reunion and it was pretty awesome. Yeah, they play some crap in there, but there was some crappy music back then, just like there’s always been. Even the crappy music can take me back though. So anyway, they played the song “There She Goes” and it said it was by The Boo Radleys. I am very fond of the movie So I Married an Axe Murderer so I am surprised at myself for not realizing the movie contained two versions of the song, the original by The La’s and a cover by The Boo Radleys (great name btw)!
Now I am kind of torn about which version I like better. Never mind the Sixpence cover, which is decent, but it doesn’t have the nostalgia factor for me like these other two versions do and that is really what makes this song affect me so deeply. The Boo Radleys version is a bit more poppier (is that even a word? Spellcheck says no, but what does it know) but it has the horns and the handclaps which I kind of dig. I’m really starting to wonder why they would put the original and the cover version in the same movie. Did they not think the original was good enough? If I were the La’s I would be kind of offended. What do you think about this whole situation?
