Unlike my husband, I don't claim any sort of variety to my musical interests. While I don't dislike but a few types of music, and will even admit to an enduring fondness for the MoTown sound, by & large when I listen to music I want to be listening to country music.
But I do have a fondness for some rock music, especially late '90s-early '00s alternative rock (which, if Wikipedia is to be believed, can also be called post-grunge). And I do use 'alternative' lightly in this case--it's really only an alternative to pop music--commercial as hell, or maybe I was just listening to the right radio stations. Either way, it wasn't something I had to seek out--musically, I'm pretty lazy.
Everclear has released a lot of good songs over the years--a particular favorite is the raw "Father of Mine", a call-out of the lead singer's disappearing dad.
But this is about guilty pleasures, and there's no guilt to liking a song that good. (Seriously, if you happen to be unfamiliar with Everclear, ignore what I'm about to embed in lieu of clicking that link, or you will get a skewed idea of the band.) Also, if you are a huge Van Morrison fan, you might want to look away now.
Still with me? Good. This is a cover of "Brown-Eyed Girl." Only, it's a rock cover. With framing lyrics, making it a song-within-a-song. Also, the video is silly. But Alexakis's vocals are as good as they always are. It's a band I like the sound of doing a song I've always vaguely liked, and the result is enjoyable. Unless, again, you expect Van Morrison. 'Cause that ain't happening.
