I like discovering new songs. I also like old songs that I’ve been listening to for years, the ones that I know by the first chord, whose words I could sing in my sleep. But sometimes I need a reminder to mix things up and listen to both the old and the new. After all, as much as I LOOOOOOVE Guster, I can’t play them every day on my way into work.
So each week I’m going to post a Song for the Week. One week it’ll be a new song that I’ve just heard for the first time. Another week, it’ll be a “Julia Classic.”
This week’s song is a cover of Tonight, Tonight by Passion Pit.
The original song is by the Smashing Pumpkins from their album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995).
I bought that album in seventh grade because my best friend was really into the Smashing Pumpkins. Tonight, Tonight was…is…my favorite song on it. I was also really intrigued by the album art. It’s still pretty cool.
So here’s Passion Pit’s cover of Tonight, Tonight, done for the Levi’s Pioneer series.
