Cake - Strangers in the Night

Coinciding with the release of the XBOX game "Stubbs the Zombie" (about a dead salesman who gets revenge) is an interesting soundtrack featuring modern indie rock and alternative favorites covering 50's classics. For example, Death Cab For Cutie do "Earth Angel", the Flaming Lips cover "If I Only Had A Brain". Other artists on board include the Walkmen, the Raveonettes, Rogue Wave and Clem Snide. But none of these bands' style seem to fit more than Cake, who cover Frank Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night". Cake have always been a good band for covers, and they deliver yet again with this one. The soundtrack is now in stores.

I downloaded a few tracks from this soundtrack yesterday actually. I was so hoping that the Flaming Lips song was a cover of MC 900 Ft Jesus.
