I'm feeling a little dense. It only took me 2 1/2 years to realize
that "Shakin'" by the Dandy Warhols on Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia
is the best Cars song the Cars never recorded. But then again, it
also took me five years to figure out that Ric Ocasek and Ben Orr split lead
vocal duties for the Cars. At least I'm not completely oblivious. I
immediately recognized the Wedding Present's covers of Bowie's "Chant of
the Ever Circling Skeletal Family" and Tom Waits' "Red Shoes by the Drugstore"
for the Fall homages that they are.
