Song of the Day: 'Your Daddy Don't Know' by Toronto

Well it turns out fellow Canadians New Pornographers were fans too, and even recorded a very true-to-the-original cover of it for the soundtrack to "FUBAR: The Movie." Can't believe I'm just now learning this -- CS: if you've got this, hook me up! -- but you can enjoy 'em both here:
