We've had the Wilco discussion many times. Two camps, with very little in between. I'm happy to say it hasn't been lovers and haters, but more like lovers and "I don't get it." I get that.
I tend to get a bit obsessive with Wilco. Like an epic film, the more viewings, or in the band's case, spins, the more treasure I discover, especially beginning with "Summerteeth," the band's third record and my favorite.
But in the case of today's tune, appropriately titled "Monday" from Wilco's second release "Being There," it's all about the ability to hit the rock and roll nail on the head. I think "Monday" does just that.
"Monday" should appeal to everyone, and I'm well aware as a fan of Wilco, that not everything Tweedy and company has released will appeal to the masses.
Is there one song that knocks you out from someone that almost always does not?
