We had a Freedy Johnston cover of this song which was really quite pretty. But the rhythm of the song turns out to be a giant pain in the ass. And really hard to program a good drum track for.
And we couldn’t figure out a good key.
So we just handed it to Mark, and made his life miserable.
I remember talking to Spingo about it, and thinking we would do a version of thius song EVERY YEAR until we got it right.
That was going to be a tradition, but we only did it once as the torment of this song was a “once enough”.
