Cover version of the week: "Bizarre Love Triangle" by Nada Surf

Nada Surf are no strangers to the cover. Their 2010 all-covers album "If I Had a Hi-Fi" had them remaking material by Spoon, Depeche Mode, Kate Bush, and the Go-Betweens, among others. This acoustic take of New Order's dance floor anthem is quite nice--I'm a big fan of the trumpet, but could do without the Bobby McFerrin human beatbox thing.

Nada Surf covers New Order

I'll admit, though, that I prefer Frente's "Bizarre Love Triangle" cover from back in 1992.
