    Yes, I’m aware that the song has been covered by The Pixies, Bauhaus, Devo, etc. They’re very nice, but they just aren’t… this.

    I recommend the book on the guy who wrote the song and was mysteriously murdered, Peter Ivers. It’s called “In Heaven Everything Is Fine: The Unsolved Life of Peter Ivers and the Lost History of New Wave Theatre”

    I would guesstimate that this song is on about half the mixtapes & mixcds I’ve ever made.

    Haha, I’d just favorited this song on YouTube a week ago. It’s a classic that’s haunted me since my middle school days. But why not the actual scene with the Lady of the Puffy Cheeks singing the song for us?


    It’s way creepier.

    It’s a great song. I too made a cover of this song. It’s a little weird I guess, but I did it (even if I did get the lyrics ever so slightly wrong) So I present to you the Snarf version : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTxfU88Wjd8
