Clem Snide - Faithfully

So, first of all, I'm not talking about that other thing at all, because whatever.

I mentioned the AV Undercover series in this post. Someone finally got around to doing "A Rush and a Push..." and it was a complete abortion. Like I said, the series has mostly been a disappointment but there are a few gems, and I am as shocked as you are that I'm putting this song into that category. It turns out that the song has a pretty solid skeleton and, with the awful 80's production stripped away, it's actually kind of nice.

If you read the blurb attached to "A Rush and a Push..." it mentions that Coheed and Cambria had previously covered another Undercover song: Faithfully. (That hair alone should have excluded them from participation.)

I'm a pretty big Eef Barzelay fan. He's great at wringing such feeling out of simple, quirky songs. The pun at the center of Joan Jett of Arc is strange and surprising and fits perfectly.
