Tough call. For me the strings don't quite feel right on Whole Wide World. Also, why doesn't that singer let his band dance, too? But it's a great song and a good cover. The cut on ghostrunner's Spotify list is a bit different, might want to have a look at that, 82/voters.

Ultimately I couldn't deny Flea's bass.

I was unaware of the Whole Wide World song. Like it a lot.

I knew it was something less credible than digging through vinyl in apple crates (but that is what I'll tell everyone here in Portland I did), so google helped me remember where I found it:



I was also interested in that one guy's guitar. I hadn't seen anything like it, and was hoping it was a Frankenstein situation with the pickup and the Bigsby whammy on an acoustic. Still cool, but it's a Gretsch model.

Higher ground intro reminds me of the Seinfeld intro.
