Earlier today, The Postal Service and Funny or Die issued a hilarious video of auditions to get everyone pumped up for the re-release of The Postal Service's album Give Up in April. Both Aimee Mann and and Weird Al do awesome interpretations of Postal Service classics (when you only have one album, every song is a classic), though Moby really wins the day with his audition meltdown. Ah, 2002. What a hard time we all were having on Friendster and Myspace...
Anyway, all the nostalgia for that year when every single Postal Service song MADE SO MUCH SENSE TO MY LIFE because I was 20 and of course heart broken and lonely and living in the Pacific Northwest, reminded me that so many amazing covers of Postal Service jams already exist and there is absolutely no better way to spend a Tuesday than watching any or all of them on repeat.

What's the difference between like and love? At 19, I liked the Postal Service, but I LOVED Ben Folds. In this classic from Myspace, the audience pulls out flip-phones and plays along with Ben. Dream life.
