Music Monday Meets Cuteness Tuesday on Wednesday

Reader, if you've never seen Flight of the Conchords, please remedy without delay. If that's not enough to persuade you, maybe this is. I die.

Did everyone know that the Cyndi Lauper song True Colors is a cover? I didn't. It's Eva Cassidy.

Okay, maybe it's not a cover. Another Wiki page says Eva Cassidy covered this song in 2003, seven years after her death. The mystery will not be solved tonight.

And apropos of nothing, is this baby otter not the cutest fucking thing you've ever seen?

Eva only did covers, I think. Beautiful voice, but I get bored of it after a while.

Best cover: Miles Davis covering Cyndi's "Time after Time." My favorite of the Lauper hits.

What can I say, I'm a jazz/'80s pop music geek.
