In 2009, this song was covered by Katy Perry on MTV Unplugged
. In our interview with Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne
, he said he was impressed by Perry's version. "Yeah, I think it's great," he said. "I thought it was interesting, because she reversed it so that the melody in the chorus is lower than the melody in the verse, which is the opposite of how we did it. But I think it actually worked out really well, gave the song a different vibe."
