Sunday Funday . . .

People often criticize "covers" of songs because apparently the sincerest form of flattery (imitation) is not all that flattering and/or the presumption that people covering something implies they can do it as well or better is also not, well, flattering.

Then there is Sturgill Simpson. I dare you to take the stance that this is not a significant improvement on the 1988 When In Rome version that we all know and love.


This version of the song, like Helen Hunt inspired Jack Nicholson's character "As Good As It Gets" makes me want to be a better man.
