The Revivalists are another band that I've been enjoying quite a bit, and their more country take on this Bee Gees song (the best Bee Gees song?) hits that thing where you want a cover song to add something new, and not just duplicate what went before. Anyway, I dig this.
Welcome to Philosofer week. I've got a half-baked idea to try to find videos of more modern artists covering less modern songs. I was inspired partially by Pepper's "Jump In The Line" video. Let's see what happens.
The first entry is Houndmouth, which is a band I've come to appreciate quite a bit. This cover of Dion's "Runaround Sue" starts a little slow, but really gets fun well before the end. Enjoy!
The 2017 resurgence of mid-to-late-aughts indie rock continues!
This is new Waxahatchee, not like the old Waxahatchee that was played a week or two ago.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

Don't really know what to play right now. So here's something.
Okay, sorry, please allow me one more...
I've talked about this several times, but I was subjected to so many shitty songs over and over again at my first job thanks to their strict policy of only Cities 97ing. It made me hate so many bands that I might have actually enjoyed (as mentioned, it took me years and years to finally realize that The Replacements ≠ Paul Westerberg solo crap). I heard Tom Petty five million times on that station, however, it somehow never phased me. Sure, some songs I wasn't as crazy about as others, but they didn't make me cringe as whichever Jackson Browne song I'd heard 3 times in the last 2 days. Whatever, I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I just wanted to play one more.
This was one of the songs that, when it would pop on that abominable radio station they played at that job, I would kick back and enjoy. Maybe she would come in again, like that one time they played this song and I hoped she would come in and she somehow actually did. It never happened again after that, but I always hoped it would.
Thanks, man. I'll miss you.
I guess the NHL season just started.
