Matthew Sweet Coverville

Matthew Sweet is The Man. He has the perfect golden, dulcet voice and writes radiant songs. I spent a good part of 1995 listening to Matthew Sweet (100% Fun is a gem in my collection), so here are two fine covers of his music that I have come across in the last few weeks and been duly pleased.

“Girlfriend” – Benjamin Wagner (thanks to stereogum)

“Sick of Myself” – Death Cab for Cutie (thanks to Yeti Don’t Dance)

…And how about to round things out, a nice cover done by Sweet himself?

“Let Me Be The One” – Matthew Sweet (Carpenters cover)

  • Hi,

    I taught I would drop a question inside a professional blog. I wish to start my own blog on

    Can anyone please tell me how to make a blog like this one? I mean does the blog
    requires advertising. I just want to know if someone have some good information about
    blogging. I need many visitors to my blog but do not know how…

    Any idea is appreciated.
    You can email me to too.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
