Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater cover “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”

11366

No doubt you guys are all familiar with the very excellent “Undercover” series that the folks over at The A.V. Club put together. Of course you are. It is, after all, one of the 10 or 11 best things on the internet (somewhere just after this).

While on tour together not long ago, Sharon Van Etten (not on Sub Pop, still great) and Shearwater (Animal Joy very recently released on Sub Pop, also great) performed a cover of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty’s duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” for those guys under the very reasonable name of Shearon Van Ettenwater. We like it a whole lot and maybe you will, too.

So! Watch Shearon Van Ettenwater perform Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.

Postscript:
We have done a not altogether awesome job of telling you guys about the Undercover performances our bands have done. There have been a bunch of them and all of them are really great. F’rinstance…

Fruit Bats did the Hall and Oates song One on One.
And, they came back later and did Loretta Lynn’s The Other Woman.
Dum Dum Girls did a terrific cover of Big Star’s terrific song September Gurls.
Here’s Low doing the Toto song Africa.
And then here Retribution Gospel Choir does Kokomo by the Beach Boys on what we’re going to go ahead and say was the very first installment of Undercover.

I’m sure there are more…

And there are!

Here’s Vetiver doing The Ramones’ Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight).
Iron and Wine took a swing at George Michael’s One More Try and knocked it right out of the f’in park.
