JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, "I am trying to break your heart"

Boing Boing unearthed this cover Wilco’s (one of my favorite bands incidentally) “I am trying to break your heart” by a Chicago band, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, which injects a decidedly party mood and soul sound to this song. It’s an interesting spin and I wasn’t sure about it the first time I heard it. I think when one feels so close to a certain song or band, it can be borderline blasphemous to hear someone else’s interpretation of it. However, the more I listen, the more I find my foot tapping along. Hipster Runoff adds his/her/their own “unique” and “identifiable” interpretation and analysis of this cover.
