This morning, Kay, well, actually Kay’s husband, Nigel the Brit, reminded me of a band I haven’t heard in a while, the Cocteau Twins. But even before that, I’ve been listening to one particular Cocteau Twins song song quite a lot this year, just not their version. See, one of my favorite bands, the Deftones, were inspired by many of the same bands that I grew up loving, and their last CD, B-Sides & Rarities, had covers of some of my favorite songs. If you know the Cocteau Twins’ ethereal, spooky soundscapes, and you know the Deftones’ uncompromising hardass yet melodic rock, you may wonder how it turned out. I’m here to tell you, it turned out great.

So, here are our two versions of the same song, joint iPod songs of the week.
