Listen to Wilco cover “(What’s So Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding”
Wilco, in case you haven’t heard, play terrific covers. Their latest is a rendition of the timeless Elvis Costello jam “(What’s So Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding,” recorded recently in New York for the Spotify Singles Series. (UPDATE: Okay, social media sticklers, this is technically a cover of a cover, as Nick Lowe wrote the song that Costello popularized. We apologize for the mis-characterization, but stand by our terming it a “jam” however. <3 – ed.) Along with it, the band also played a new version of “If I Ever Was a Child” from last year’s Schmilco. Listen to the EC cover below, stream both songs here and catch Wilco live this summer at the XPoNential Music Festival; tickets and more info can be found at XPNFest.org.
Ah, what the heck, this is a great song, so here are a few more versions of it.
