An Open Letter To Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs

Hey Matthew...Susie,
Hope you're both well. Matt, how was last night's show at City Winery? I really wanted to go but it was so humid.
Listen, we love you two in this Burning Wood community.  So much so, that a bunch of us have neglected family and pets just to discuss your upcoming 3rd volume of covers.
I'm pretty sure RichD forgot to go to work today and Troy got on the wrong bus, all because this Volume 3 tunestack has to go.
We've discussed this and we feel this is the way to go. This is what's right.
Look it over. 
I'm sure you'll see it our way. You can keep the recordings you've finished.  I mean, we'd all love to hear everything you've done, even if we don't live in Japan. But you should consider, while there is time, to get back in the studio and cut the following:

Me Myself I- Joan Armatrading
Something So Strong- Crowded House
Salt In My Tears- Martin Briley
Voices Carry- Til Tuesday
It's My Life- Talk Talk
The Bitterest Pill- The Jam
Stop Draggin' My Heart Around- Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty
Fade Away- Bruce Springsteen
Wall Of Death- Richard Thompson
Kid- The Pretenders
More Than This- Roxy Music
Towers Of London- XTC
Killing Moon- Echo & The Bunnymen
Hey You- Pink Floyd
A Million Miles Away- The Plimsouls

It'll be better for you and for the family. Now I don't know this Merle, I don't know what he does, I...uh...oh sorry.

Thanks for listening, you two! You guys.

Looking forward to "our" record. The better record.

Hello, please remain seated,

Outstanding...strong work, comrades, strong work. Pretty good penmanship there, too, Sal.

Listen...if you're ever stumped for a weekend mix or something...well....far be it from me.
