The Shins

The web has not only made it possible for artists to present their music quickly and efficiently without the necessity of middle men (record labels, physical distribution channels, etc.) but also to share their interpretations of some of their favorite songs by other artists that they admire. There have been so many wonderful cover songs of late that we may have to have a separate category for cover song of the week. Passion Pit, Mates of State, Smashing Pumpkins and The Pixies have covers elsewhere on this site. “Goodbye Girl” originally appeared on Cool for Cats, the album from Squeeze in 1978. We present this delicious version by The Shins as the Song of the Day.
