Some songs were not meant to be unplugged, acoustic or stripped down. Case in point: VHS or Beta’s Can’t Believe a Single Word.
I never listened to the group before this year’s Bring on the Comets was released. And this song grabbed me right out of the gate. How could it not? I haven’t even given two thoughts to the lyrics; I’m more interested in how the drums move me, how the chorus pulls me in. Again, how could it not?
The band stopped by WOXY for a Lounge Acts session. I can understand the desire to perform and hear a song in a different context. But acoustic guitars do Can’t Believe no justice. Still a great song … but gimme the drums!
