St Vincent was on Letterman last night


But she didn't use a Tele, so I'm posting this video.

That's a nice version. Makes more sense with a girl singing it.

I think so, too. I mostly think of it as a Nico song, one where her limits as a singer transform into strengths.

Yeah, that's true. For some reason, I think about the Greg Allman and Jackson Browne takes.

I heard Greg backed by Warren once, and it seemed like a poor fit. They did it well, but it didn't work for me, while St. Vincent's is good and Nico's is perfect.

"I had not forgotten them" doesn't work coming from a guy like Greg, I don't think.
