Motorcycle Drive By by Third Eye Blind is THE break-up song of all break up songs. That sentiment is unlikely to change, ever. On the band's debut album, which was packed with hits, it often gets overlooked, yet it's one of two perfect songs on the LP. The other perfect song just so happens to be another break-up song, "How's it Going to Be?" No less equally devastating, we get to listen in as a relationship begins to comes undone, and those difficult questions of moving on start invading hearts and minds. It's powerful.
Just this week, Brooklyn based 2-piece folk act Widowspeak took on the unenviable task of covering of "How's it Going to Be?" and it might just be as good as the original. A few things we don't do much of here at Aimless Skylarking, remixes and covers. It had better be damn near perfect for us to take notice, and Widowspeak did just that, they made this their song. Gorgeous composition and vocal delivery. Divine! Listen in below.
