Ben Gibbard probably has one of the best ears for picking cover songs more than any other musician. His interpretation of "Thriller" turned the zombie dance number into something heart breaking and just as good or better than the original version.
Now he's taken his Zooey Dechannel loving hands and used them to rework, well really just slow down, Matthew Sweet's "Sick of Myself." Keep up the good work Benjamin.
Oh, and you can go here to listen to several covers by him and Death Cab For Cutie. His version of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" is a must listen.
