“I am trying to break your heart” – Wilco

Happy Valentine’s Day! This Wilco song, like my singleness, is nothing new. Best paired with: a significant other on the waterfront. Alternative pairings: you, yourself, and a pint of vegan ice cream. The vocals are simple and sweet, and the piano line steals a sentiment or two from your favorite Billy Joel ballad, making it kind of instantly loveable. Don’t mistake this for a throwaway love song, though. The noisy instrumental and Tweedy’s distressed singing near the end of the track nod towards something greater than a sabotaged relationship.
