They'll Zip You Up, and Dress You Down, and Stand You in a Row

Yesterday, a friend pointed me to this YouTube video of French singer/actress Vanessa Paradis — better known on these shores as the common law wife of Johnny Depp — performing a Euro pop rendition of Big Star's "The Ballad of El Goodo," which has also been reinterpreted by the likes of Ted Leo, Matthew Sweet, the Counting Crows, and the Lemonheads.

Guess there's nothing like knowing, "You don't have to, you can just say 'no'!" Unfortunately, Paradis didn't listen to her own advice.
