The original version has never been a particular favorite; about the best I can say about it is that when it came on the radio I wouldn't necessarily change the station. Westerberg's cover, on the other hand, has always killed me in its vintage Replacements sort of way.
I should add that I had more or less forgotten about the cover till somebody at Facebook posted it this week in honor of Edwards 75th birthday.
I also should add that the depressing title of today's post is a line from Georg Büchner's even more depressing early 19th century play Wozzeck.
Have a great weekend, everybody!!!
