Broccoli Man Abides!

Great Songwriter, Mediocre Song, Great Movie and 2 Great Covers, although, 1 must be better than the other …

The Original

Jackson Browne:


The Cover Songs Competition


Both deserving of consideration but, c’mon, is this really a fair fight. I think not.


The Gamits vs. Yo La Tengo


The Gamits:

Yo La Tengo:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.



Votes can be cast up to seven days from the day and time of the original post.

Disclaimer: Votes cast from Florida may or may not be counted.

    The Gamits gave it a nice go but, c’mon, Yo La Tengo owns this song. As a matter of fact I’m going to break the drought and nominate it as an Impeccable Top Ten Putrid-to-Palatable selection. Granted, I’m not sure how that whole nominating-to-decision process is going to work yet. But that’s just details. The hat has officially been thrown into the ring!
