Not the biggest fan of the song, but his voice suits it well.

I love this song and dig some JEW, but I'm not sure this is the best pairing. I mean, it definitely sounds good, but it doesn't quite meet the bar set by the original or JEW's other material. The end is pretty good, though.

This turned out pretty good. JEW are great with covers.

I definitely prefer the Ariana Grande version of this Rihanna song to the Jimmy Eat World version.

Sentences that are rare to type. So many variables had to go according to plan.

I do really like how he didn't change the gender in the lyrics. Hate that in covers.

I'll assume you're only saying this because it's her birthday.

the hardest park of this for me is admitting that at some point he had to sit and listen to Rihanna long enough to memorize this song and learn how to play it.

Exactly what I thought. Maybe a b-side if nothing else.

was that today or yesterday? But nah, the first half is an amazing cover, and the second half is just a well done straight forward cover and that's fine but that first half tho. Have you heard it?
