NIN closed their set on Monday at the Hollywood Bowl with this song. It was a haunting way to end a show, but not as haunting at Johnny Cash’s cover.

Just One of the Guys by Jenny Lewis

Still trying to make sense of that “I’m just another lady without a baby” line. Any  theories as to what it means?

"All our friends, they’re gettin’ on / But the girls are still staying young / If I get caught being rude in a conversation / With a child bride on a summer vacation / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little something inside that prevents me / It’s how I live / You got me here / Locked in this bathroom full of tears / And I have begged for you and I have borrowed / But I’ve been the only sister to my own sorrow / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little clock inside that keeps tickin’ / There’s only one difference between you and me / When I look at myself, all I can see / I’m just another lady without a baby / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little cop inside that prevents me / I’m not gonna break for you / I’m not gonna pray for you / I’m not gonna pay for you / That’s not what ladies do”

Sons and Daughters by Allman Brown and Liz Lawrence

This beautiful duet by Allman Brown and Liz Lawrence is a rather depressing song about a barren couple longing for children. Despite this rather heavy subject matter, Brown and Lawrence’s voices complement each other so well making this song one of my favorite male-female duets in recent memory.

"And I, will hold you tight, like the moon in the arms of the sky / And I, will keep you warm, I will build a fire in this house / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / And I, I’ll wrap myself around your heart I’ll be the walls of his heart / And I, I’ll keep light on, to call you back home / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / And it’s all to come for now we’re still young / Just building our kingdom but it’s all to come / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / It’s all to come for now we’re still young"

A tribute to 90s grunge music in 8-bit form. I hate to nitpick, but weren’t most of the 1990s the era of 16-bit video games (i.e., Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo)? Regardless, this is a pretty sweet trip down nostalgia way.
