Rocket Man, From the Classifieds

From WBEZ in Chicago | This American Life

Finally, I got a copy of This American Life's "Crimebusters and Crossed Wires", which contains the "greatest hits" of the show. (I think it's just a small cross-section of their hits, but I like most of their stuff.) And I'm going off to the airport in a little bit, so I happen to be thinking of this show, specifically Part 3. Starlee Kine and Jon Langford create a one-day band from classified ads, and create a pretty amazing cover of Rocket Man, by Elton John.

OK, so my mind works in pretty weird ways. Check the cover out anyway, it's really good.
