I've secretly always liked this song. It also always makes me think of this one scene in Arrested Development. Well done. I think the drums have a nice tone to them, too. I wished those harmonies at the end were a little louder, but alas.

You had me from the first chord, but you really won me over with the organ solo.

Yeah, the opening guitar chord is fantastic.

Oh yeah. This is really nicely done.

I always thought the original song harbored some mixed feelings underneath the sparkle, and you tease that out with the slower tempo and heavy feel.

What I like about this version is that it's in-between. It's not like you are making an easy choice that the narrator thinks that the city absolutely sucks, and is singing completely against the original. Great job.
