Has anyone else ever questioned who sang "Wrap Your Arms Around Me", one of the Barenaked Ladies songs on Gordon? I've always thought it was Ed, but a friend of mine pointed out that Ed's voice sounds different elsewhere on the album. We record a lot of cover songs and consider ourselves BnL experts, but we couldn't agree on an answer. Any ideas?...
