Radio Ljubljana 6

A compare and contrast exercise for you today. Electronic twiddling courtesy of The Postal Service (so called because the two musicians involved posted their efforts to each other and gradually assembled it into Give Up, which is well worth a listen):

and an acoustic version of the same song performed solo by one half of TPS, Ben Gibbard, better known for his day job of fronting Death Cab For Cutie:

I can't decide which version I prefer, but being a big old softy at heart I have to confess to loving the song's sentiment.
