breaking bad

'I'll see what I can do'

This is magic. My favourite song of of probably the last twenty years is 'Common People' by Pulp. A new version has been released, performed (I won't say sung) by William Shatner. Oh my god I may blow a gasket.

I had heard about this track of course, as a legend recounted by a raddled mercenary in some space bar, but here is the sound file. Yay.

NB the tuneful singing in the last 1/3 of the track is Joe Jackson. Guess it's different for girls.
