when you were mine / you were kinda sorta my best friend

Portland’s John Heart Jackie (along with Justin Harris from Menomena) take on Prince’s 1980 lovesick ballad, weaving a swanky little few minutes of atmosphere, in the middle of a tour no less. Impressive.

When You Were Mine (Prince) – John Heart Jackie

GO SEE: John Heart Jackie play Boulder’s Laughing Goat on Sunday, Denver’s Walnut Room on Monday, and Fort Collins’ Everyday Joe’s on Tuesday.

Oh, I also still love the version Crooked Fingers did on that ace EP.

"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..."

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.
