I mean, who the fuck listens to Nebraska and thinks, "WHERE IS THE SAX?"

This is a good rendition. I really hate it when covers sound like the original. They made it their own--I like the shortening of some of the lines, all the "baby" talk is cut out. "Last night I met this guy--" is repeated, and that's a cool lead-up.

You know those videos on youtube where some guy took footage of Eric Clapton or the like playing and overdubbed awkward guitar twanging over it?  That's what the guitar sounds like in that first video.

Craig Fin has the least melodic voice I've ever heard.  Some people can avoid specific tonal singing entirely and still sound like they're putting together a grand melody; Finn can sing a melody, and his voice will erase all the notes.

Maybe you just need to concentrate more on the notes that aren't being played?
