Cover Thursdays- Everything Looks Perfect From Far Away

"Such Great Heights" is most likely one of the defining songs from the last decade of Indie music.  From it's original Postal Service version, to it's immensely popular Iron & Wine cover version, this song maintains it's beauty.  It's difficult to beat Postal Service's or Iron & Wine's take on the song.   However, this version from Ben Folds is a whole lot of fun. It includes dozens of guitars and even cell phones and instruments.  No one in music uses audience participation better than Ben Folds.

Here's Ben Folds' cover of "Such Great Heights", originally by Postal Service!
