Random Weekend Post: Caution… May Contain Wilco like Substances

Posted in JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, Wilco on June 26, 2010 by AmericanaPulse

Two related… if bizarre videos today.

The first is Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy giving a dramatic reading of “Single Ladies”…

The second is a cover of Wilco’s “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” by a band called JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound.

I wish I could remember which blog I saw this on first. I can’t. I just remember hating it at first, and then being slowly sucked in as it went along. I think it’s the combination of the infectious groove coupled with the absolute nonsensicalness of the lyrics that left me amused and bemused by this video. It’s actually a lot of fun.
