The Most Awesome Cover Song of the Year

William Shatner Sings Again.

Captain Kirk teamed up with Ben Folds (yes, that Ben Folds) to create this pop-driven new album. The majority of the album was written by the duo, with the exceptions of “Trying,” co-written by Folds and novelist Nick Hornby (yes, the guy behind High Fidelity), “Real” by Brad Paisley and a cover of “Common People” (with Joe Jackson!) by British band Pulp.

I have just heard the Shatnerized “Common People” and it is exactly as you would expect it to be. Read that however you wish.
