Cover #19 is “In The Blood”, originally written and recorded by Better Than Ezra for their 1995 album Deluxe. It was written by Kevin Griffin.
Aaaaand we’re back, after a brief absence of only (mumbles a number under his breath) days. This whole life thing, it’s crazy, no?
Seriously, this week has been really busy, adjusting to a new job and all, so I’ve barely had time to think, let alone record. But here we are. After all that waiting, you’ve got a brand new cover by me, and it’s a song by… um… Better Than Ezra.
Now, now, hang on a minute. “In The Blood” is a great tune, and it (and not “Good”) was the reason I bought Deluxe back in the ’90s in the first place. I’m a sucker for lesser-known alt-rock almost-hits, and always have been. That’s why I like “Photograph” better than “The Freshmen” and “Molly” better than “Plowed.”
This cover owes a lot to the Postal Service in execution, so it’s a very 2000’s take on a very ’90s song. Enjoy!
We’ll catch up. You’ll get 30 covers, eventually. Promise. Posting the next one tomorrow afternoon, thanks to the magic of Auto-post.
Next up…: Ten years ago, I couldn’t wear my coat to school.
