This week’s best thing ever

Kelly Clarkson, the first American Idol winner, has a breakout hit called “Since U Been Gone” that you’ve probably heard. It’s totally addictive and I think may just be this year’s Hey Ya. Even my indie rock friends all adore the track (even Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing fame puts it in his top three favorites).

So when word got out that indie rock legend Ted Leo covered it, we searched and searched and a bounty was even offered. Eventually, it was found, at UGO.com. Worlds colliding!

I ripped the audio from the streaming video file on their site and here’s the song: Ted Leo doing a cover of “Since U Been Gone” (192kbps, MP3)

It was worth the search and the wait.
