Your Saturday Placeholder Entry

Here it is. And for some reason, this song just seems really relevant this week.

Also, to keep people from trotting it out in the comments, the Shatner version, complete with animated Kirk/Spock slashtasticness:

Enjoy your day.

A) I LOVE Ben Folds.
B) He made that Shatner CD so much better than it has any right of actually being. There are a few honestly decent tracks on it, Common People being one of them…

Having somehow missed that song in the ’90s, I viewed both versions here for the first time. Something I never thought I’d say about a musical recording involving William Shatner: his version hits harder than the original.

It’s weird, I always had an idea of doing videos to Shatner’s album using TAS footage, but I didn’t think it’d wind up being a Kirk/Spock video. The romance was supposed to be with either Uhura or that cat lady, I forget her name (M’hress? or something). But when assembling the video the bit where Spock’s eye glances at Kirk *just happened* to be sitting right at that lyric… and I knew what I had to do.

I might still do “Ideal Woman” though, you never know. Thanks again!
