PSB FTW

Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” may have the consensus in America as the greatest cover-song ever, but in the UK, the Pet Shop Boys’ “Always On My Mind” reigns supreme, according to a new BBC poll and, well, me. Just saying that my love for the PSBs is not purely a personal fixation; it’s a global phenomenon, largely occluded by radio in the US. And speaking of covers and the PSBs, the AV Club recently got the heavy metal band, Gwar, to cover “West End Girls.” Seriously cracked me up.
