VIA THE COMMENTS AT ANN ALTHOUSE’S, I ran across this rather cool cover of Stuck In The Middle With You by Susanna Hoffs, which I had somehow missed before.
And here’s a cool cover of Cinnamon Girl by her and Matthew Sweet. Very nice, though I have to say Hoffs has held up a lot better than Sweet, appearance-wise. Matthew Sweet’s Girlfriend may have been the last song that I heard on the radio and then went directly to a record store to buy the album. The drum/guitar/bass/harpsichord break is pure genius. I saw him on that tour at the Bijou in Knoxville and it was a good show, though the t-shirt girl said he was a “brat.” To my knowledge, he never actually dated Tuesday Weld.
