Stop Me If You Think That You've Heard This One Before

Last night I was making food for our Fourth of July party when I heard a familiar lyric on MTV Hits. "Stop me, oh oh oh, stop me..." was being sung against a funky beat. "Sounds like my favorite Smiths song," I thought. Then I heard "I was delayed I was waylayed..." It was the Smiths' song' but it obviously wasn't Morrissey singing. I ran over to the TV to check it out. It was some bloke wearing a James Joyce Dubliners shirt (haha...get it?) singing in a bar while a good looking dude was walking around a city where people were crying a lot of cartoon tears. I was little taken back because like, who would cover the Smiths? That band Snake River Conspiracy but anyways.
At the end of the video I saw that it was Daniel Merriweather featuring Mark Ronson! I was no longer upset once I realized it was my number 1 DJ crush. Good job, Mark. You took very good care of my favorite summer song. I WILL be buying your album especially since I heard Alex Greenwald is on it but that is another story for another time.
