I actually prefer this to the original. What's your thoughts?

MQ: This cover is a mix up of two songs. The White Stripes music and melody with the lyrics provided by the Butthole Surfers' ''Moving To Florida'' What songs do you know that does something similar?

Update:

Afternoon, Captain. I get the feeling you didn't like it then :)

Update 2:

Good morning, Amy :) Thank you for answering. I'm quite surprised that you are the only answer that preferred the F-Lips version. You've hit the nail on the head with your description.

    Hi Mark, and a very good morning to you.

    I agree with your. It is way better than the original. It's fun, energetic and highly listenable.

    MQ. I have to have dinner right now, but will edit after.

    EDIT: HI Mark. I didn't forget about this since yesteday, but best I can come up with is one you gave me, The Flaming Lips with Yoko Ono- Cambridge 1969/2007 lol :)

    That was pretty cool. I think I prefer the original version though.

    It uses lyrics from Patrick Kavanagh's poem Dark Haired Miriam Ran Away and the melody comes from The Dawning Of The Day.
