Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Broc 3 - Cover Me Impressed

Everybody’s Dressin’ Funny … Cover Me Impressed!

 

The original version of “Can’t Hardly Wait” – produced by Alex Chilton – was intended for The Replacements 1985 album Tim. After missing the cut for Tim, the song was substantially re-worked and released on their 1987 album Pleased to Meet Me. Although Chilton did not produce the version on Pleased to Meet Me he did provide a few guitar licks to the recording.

From the first time I heard “Can’t Hardly Wait” I’ve really liked it. Pounding guitars and perfectly desperate vocals in a tightly wrapped package. Even the horns and strings work well in this rocker.

The Box Tops vs. The Rock*A*Teens

The Box Tops (1967):

Alex Chilton’s vocals are superb on this cut!

The Rock*A*Teens:

Under-appreciated Atlanta band of old, The Rock*A*Teens, throw down a great power-pop version of this old R&B classic. And yes, that is the incomparable Kelly Hogan providing hand-claps, foot stomps, backup vocals and miscellaneous other Goddess-like enhancements.

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.
