    On the subject of New Wave covers, I heard this at the gym yesterday and it took me a minute to remember that 311 wasn't the original artist. They do a version of this song that fits them very well imo

    That's because just one like would seem like an insult.

    Solomon Burke's "Fast Train" is infinitely better than Van Morrison's. Whoever scored The Wire placed this song perfectly to conclude season 3.
