Song of the Day: Death Cab for Cutie, "Rockin' Chair"

Song of the Day: Death Cab for Cutie, "Rockin' Chair"

Tribute albums can be hit or miss, but the forthcoming Endless Highway: The Music of the Band sounds pretty promising. Due Jan. 30, the disc has My Morning Jacket doing "It Makes No Difference," a rendition of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" by the Allman Brothers, and this cover of "Rockin' Chair" by Death Cab for Cutie. It well preserves the integrity of the song, but Ben Gibbard's voice with the commanding piano adds a more sensitive-dude vibe to the tune. (Thanks to In House With Jeremy Peterson for posting the track.)

I try to like Death Cab... I try SO hard. But Ben Gibbard's voice just drives me nuts. He sounds too wussy for me or something.
