I Want my XTC continues with my favorite XTC song again. Yesterday, I posted all about the Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead. Well, one of my favorite covers of all time is of that song. Where is it from? It’s from the soundtrack of a movie that I hate with an undying passion- Dumb & Dumber. But from that Jim Carrey/ Jeff Daniels disasterpiece came a great XTC cover. It was done by the Crash Test Dummies and it featured vocals by Ellen Reid, instead of Brad Roberts. So instead of a CTD song with that deep deep voice, you get Ellen’s wonderful voice (no hate to Brad but I prefer hers) and it makes for a great XTC cover. Much better than Sarah Maclachlan fumbling through “Dear God”.

You can check out Song 184 “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” by Crash Test Dummies in the clip section of the CTD website: http://www.crashtestdummies.com/
