One of my favorite songs of 2012 is Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields‘ wonderful ode to falling in love with your best friend the one time he puts on drag (hey, we’ve all had that experience, right?), “Andrew in Drag.” Now James Mercer and The Shins have covered the song for Like a Version, upping the tempo and putting a pop-rock twist on the song. Love it, love it, love it. Especially that ending. Watch the video below and stay tuned for an MP3 if I can ever get it converted!
