I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
It's my father's voice dreaming of / Sailors sailing off in the morning

JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound cover Wilco


This soul infused cover of Wilco’s I Am Trying to Break Your Heart has been making the rounds, and I’ve been rather slow to post it actually. Other things on my mind I suppose.

It’s fairly awesome, and works the refrain from Theologians into the mix as well.

The funny thing is I’m a pretty good candidate for not liking this, but I do. I most often describe I Am Trying to Break Your Heart as a song that reaches deep into my soul and tears it out every time I hear it, and I mean it.

This version turns the song into a pretty entertaining and much lighter romp, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
