    Someone pointed this out to me and I figured I'd share it. It's a cover by Matchbox Twenty of 'The Smithereens - Girl Like You'.

    I came accross it because I read that on Santana's new album Rob Thomas is doing a cover with him of 'Sunshine of Your Love'. He didn't strike me as that type of guy who could pull that off, but I thought he did a pretty good job with this one.

    Good song and cover. I saw the Smithereens in a club in Providence in the mid 90's. Really good straight foward rock n roll. They seem to have gotten alot "bigger" over the years;)

    I agree with you, they were definitely a good band. And you're right, they're definitely a bit heftier these days if you look up any recent shows :cool:

    I saw them at the Club Casino in Hampton NH in the mid 80s.
