Cover and Original - Maps

I came across this song Maps when I played Rock Band with a couple friends of mine for the first time. The tune stuck in my head until I remembered what it was and I've been listening to it since. I was browsing around earlier today and came across a cover of the song, by the fantastic indie-group Arcade Fire.
Their cover version of the song is pretty faithful to the original version. The vocals are changed over to match a male voice and the group has created their own subtle variation of the song that makes it a bit richer - there's some interesting songs thrown in there, which is pretty cool.
