Covers: 'This Guy's In Love With You'

Some might consider Herb Alpert a guilty pleasure, but I truly don't find much shame or guilt with my love for 60's & 70's easy listening type stuff.  Herb Albert is a pioneer for the easy listening genre, in fact he's the one who gave The Carpenters their big break.  One of Herb's best known songs is the ballad 'This Guy's In Love  With You' (written by Burt Bacharach). If you haven't heard the song before I highly recommend it because regardless of genre, it's a gorgeous song (the cheesy video is a plus of course).

Herp Albert - 'This Guy's In Love With You'

Although this track has been covered endlessly by the likes of Dusty Springfield, Julio Iglesias, Noel Gallagher, Freedy Johnston and Diana Ross my favorite cover version goes to none other than Faith No More.

I've posted before about what a big fan I am of Mike Patton as a vocalist.  There aren't many rock guys around with a range like him.  When I found a live version of Faith No More covering this song I knew I had to post it.  Enjoy.
