I might be the only one interested in AV undercover, but I also know that there are quite a few They Might Be Giants fans here, so they might want to her is cover of Birdhouse in Your Soul.

 Vocally it's a bit hard to hear and not entirely pleasing to the ear (instrumentally it's good), but that might be part of the point to this cover, which opens with a Charles Bukowski poem called "Bluebird" that's about him keeping down the "bluebird inside him" by drinking and appearing tough and unreachable.  Might be that sound levels didn't quite work, but it couldbe the voice was the bluebird and the music was keeping him down.
I think I like the original better, but and interesting take on it.
