My song is better than your song

Tomorrow night, I'm going to a Wilco concert at a minor league baseball stadium in Lowell. They're one of my favorite bands, and I like frontman Jeff Tweedy's solo material just as much, if not more, than Wilco's songs. I don't know if it's the voice, the lyrics, the guitar, or what, but I just find him utterly irresistible. Here's a great version of Jeff Tweedy and former bandmate Jay Bennett (who died earlier this year) performing the New Madrid, a song from Tweedy's pre-Wilco days.

New Madrid- Tweedy & Bennett

If you never hear from me again, it's because I ran away with Jeff Tweedy and we're very happy together.
