Writing Music: Johnnyswim, “Wicked Game”

Wicked Game is one of those songs that sounds so different depending on who covers it. My fave cover for years was HIM (my 14-year-old goth phase is never far beneath the surface, let’s be real); only recently was that overtaken by James Vincent McMorrow‘s. I was playing it on loop on the plane to California yesterday as I wrote.

Aaaaaand it has just been bumped down to second place.

I love it when Johnnyswim get moody and dark. “Over” makes me cry like a baby… I can’t wait to buy their new album Georgica Pond. Take my money, guys. Take it.


Anyway, I’ve gotta get back to reading. I need to burn through like another 400 pages before Tuesday… eeek.
