    While not working two jobs, pumping ridiculous amounts of iron at the gym, saving baby seals from being clubbed in the Arctic, and serenading senior citizens with jazz flute, I am (and will forever be) on the constant hunt for acoustic covers of those hip songs all the youngsters listen to.

    My search has led me far and wide across the land of Youtube, and - while I've made some great discoveries - I always crave something new, interesting, and intriguing. So I turn to you, dear, sweet, beautiful Realjock community (you're all beautiful! Every one of you! *Miss America wave*) - do you have any fantastical acoustic covers? If so, post away!

    In the spirit of the holiday season, I'll share one of my favorites:

    Dead and Gone (T.I.) - performed by Tiffany Eugenio (aka Tiffyiffyiffy)

    Originally an uptempo song off her latest album, I AM. She wanted to sing an acoustic version of it in Vegas. It talks about a relationship thats so wonderful... you dont know if its a sweet dream, or a beautiful nightmare.

    Great melancholy feel from Johnny Cash.

    At the risk of having more people listen than post, here's yet another (and while I'm not crazy about the guy's voice, I luuuurv the guitar):
