    If someone didn't tell me I would think that is the Smiths. I loathe the Smiths so I don't know a ton of their songs and would just think that is one of them.

    I'm a binary (black and white) thinker and tend to also have syntax errors and have a "that does not compute" response to some questions.

    In this case, for me, a poor mans version of an artist would have to fall into this kind of thing:

    Brit Floyd is a poor man's version of Pink Floyd. i.e. poor man's version is always a tribute band or maybe a cover band.

    I was actually going to go with John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band(tho the Eddie and the Cruisers Soundtrack is classic), is a poor man's version of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

    As for John Mellencamp and the Boss...two totally different worlds and sounds

    (Early) Soul Asylum were also the poor man's Replacements.

    Or were they the poor man's Goo Goo Dolls?
