This is The Soundtrack Of Our Lives covering Nick Drake's "Fly". When I was first hearing it I was blown away. They really took the song and gave it some real vigor, and towards the end it really takes off. Which, given the title, kinda fits. Great stuff. The drumming and vocals really reminded me of Keith Moon and Roger Daltry from The Who, as well. Anyway, give this a listen. It's taken from the album Communion, which is double discs of awesomeness.

Please give me second grace
Please give me a second face
I've fallen far down
The first time around
Now I just sit on the ground in your way

Now, if it's time for recompense for what's done
Come, come sit down on the fence in the sun
And the clouds will roll by
And we'll never deny
It's really too hard for the fly.

Please tell me your second name
& Please play me your second game
I've fallen so far
for the people you are
I just need your star for a day.

So come, come ride in my streetcar car by the bay
For now I must know how fine you are in your way
And the sea she will sigh.
but she won't need to cry
For its really too hard for the fly.
