Give a listen

Pop on over to Aaron Dethrage's SoundCloud site and listen to this cover of Kevin Devine's "Just Stay."  Ben's vocals are a treat, and the song is lovely. 

I love that people young and old are always creating new songs and reinterpreting old ones.  I think often of The Count's final speech at the end of Pirate Radio:

Years will come, years will go, and politicians will do fuck all to make the world a better place.

But all over the world, young men and young women will always dream dreams and put those dreams into song.

Nothing important dies tonight. Just a few ugly guys on a crappy ship.

The only sadness tonight is that, in future years, there'll be so many fantastic songs that it will not be our privilege to play.

But, believe you me, they will still be written.

They will still be sung and they will be the wonder of the world.
Indeed, to me, they are.
