Going Postal

So, I was recently over my friends place and he started playing an acoustic version of the Postal Service song Such Great Heights on his guitar. I was blown away by the sounds of this song done with finger picking. Only after finishing playing did he say “oh, that’s how Iron and Wine plays that song.” This song isn’t exactly a lost melody, but hey, it sounds like it is. This version is timeless, beautiful, and dare I say- may even be better than the original (which I do think is fantastic). Don’t hate it just because it was featured in an M&M commercial. Which version of the song do you prefer?
