This American Song

So I mentioned a while back that I really enjoyed the episode of This American Life where Starlee Kine writes a break-up song, inspired by true events and mentored by Phil Collins. She also got help from Joe McGinty and Julia Greenberg (they wrote the music to her lyrics).

Okay, so I'm way late to the party, but it turns out last year TAL put out a call to cover the song and they received lots of entries. Starlee, Joe and Julia, along with two professional music critics all picked their favorite versions, explained their choices and posted the MP3s on the web. Check it out!
