Coincidentally, at just this moment I happen to be listening to your best of 2010 comp. However, now I feel I have to download & listen to this one so I can experience Amy Rigby & Wreckless Eric covering "Fernando."

The Eric/Amy covers album is pretty good. They also do two other songs I'd already chosen for this collection by other artists: "In My Room" and "You Tore Me Down"
