In my humble opinion, this cover blows the original away! I know this song is supposed to be a love song, but I was always reminded of my brother when I heard it, and this cover captures that emotion much better for me.
Today is a beautiful sunny day in New York, and there's nothing I'd rather do right now than take a blanket to Sheep's Meadow, enjoy the sunshine, and listen to this song on repeat! Being inside at my desk on days like these makes me a little stir-crazy.
Incidentally, I had the pleasure of going to college with Pete and Jason (Harper & Blynn), and if you haven't listened to them before, I recommend starting with their album Loneliest Generation. Also, if you're on Twitter, HB has created a hilarious account chronicling the many weird and hilarious things that come out of their drummer Sarab's mouth.
If you ever have a chance to see them live, do it! They're so much fun to watch.
