There are few things in this world that make me happier then Andrew Bird... and honestly I can't think of anything right now. Dark Was the Night offers another nice little number in Andrew Bird covering, The Handsome Family, The Giant of Illinois. The story inspired by Robert Wadlow, the Alton Giant. The song is a forelorn tune, sung the way only Andrew could.
I also included Cat Powers version of Amazing Grace, which was mediocre at best.
