Modern Acoustic Dejection Showdown

Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band - Cape Canaveral

Because victory is sweet even deep in the cheap seats.


Bon Iver - Re: Stacks

Because it's hard to find it when you knew it / When your money's gone / And you're drunk as hell.


Bruce Springsteen - The Wrestler

Because these things that have comforted me, I drive away / This place that is my home I cannot stay.

All three of these tracks have been getting serious spin-time in recent weeks here at world headquarters. But there is only one way to go in this showdown. Because a song written by Bruce Springsteen for Mickey Rourke only comes around once in a lifetime.
