    I never knew Fischerspooner's the 15th was a cover.. it's one of my favorite songs of theirs. ..same for placebo.. and that is my favorite of theirs. Have you heard running up that hill by the chromatics? of all the versions of that song (all good), I love that one the most. 5 stars in my library. good list!
