Shh! Don’t Wake John Hughes!January 21, 2010
I generally like Death Cab for Cutie, and I generally like Simple Mind’s Don’t You Forget About Me, and yet, this cover version of that song by that band is so lifeless & disinterested. Even though Zooey Deschanel’s husband claims they performed it to honor John Hughes, it seems more like they thought he wasn’t dead, but rather just sleeping, and they were afraid of waking him up. Lame, Death Cab. LAME.
