Folds has no problem slipping in covers. His cover of The Cure's "In Between Days" is a fan favorite. Robert Smith, who wrote the song, enjoys Folds version.
"It's a great song," Folds said. "I've always liked that song and that album ('Head on the Door'). Robert Smith really liked my version a lot. The interesting thing is that he was being urged to let recording artists cover songs for a Cure tribute album and from what I hear he wasn't crazy about the idea. I'm told my version of 'In Between Days' changed his mind about that. His approval of my version of his song is the highlight of my career."
