Because There's Nothing Else to Do

I haven’t heard this cover of “Common People” since I saw Shatner and Joe Jackson perform it on one of the late shows a few years back. Yesterday I caught it from the beginning on Sirius, and it’s been rolling through my head ever since.

It’s not brilliance by any means, but there’s something catchy about it and I like the way Shatner’s spoken-word delivery mingles with Jackson’s singing in the second half.
