Lovely cover of this song by Postal Service from their 2003 album “Give Up” – the description in Youtube says “From jTV in Australia, Ben Folds’s Like a Version from 2006, The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights”. Ben Folds is very talented guy with some creative musical improv methods. I’d really like to see him live one day.
Bit more on Postal Service ..
“Despite the fact that their main bands are still active, The Postal Service supported their full-length album Give Up with a successful concert tour and has stated intentions to tour more in the future. The album’s most notable single was “Such Great Heights”, which has been featured in various television commercials and movie trailers. The album also became the most successful album for the Sub Pop label since Nirvana’s debut album Bleach.
On June 26, 2006 it was revealed that The Postal Service has begun work on a new album, though the specifics of the release date are ambiguous with Gibbard stating “We’re slowly starting. We’re crawling right now, and whether that crawl turns into a walk remains to be seen. But we’ll know more towards the end of the year. I’ve just been touring so much and trying to find time to make it happen and make our schedules line up.” Tamborello also added “We’re talking about wanting to finish an album by sometime next year, because we have to work with Death Cab’s schedule and stuff. I definitely want to do another one.” Two songs have been recorded, and the band has speculated that the album will be released in late 2007 or in 2008.” – wikipedia
