Chris Walla - "Shattered Dreams"

So I'm sitting here working at Java Vino and listening through a bunch of stuff on my hard drive. While browsing some tunes by musician/producer/vegetarian Chris Walla (of Death Cab for Cutie fame), a familiar melody kicked in. I had forgotten all about it, but last fall Mr. Walla released a cover of "Shattered Dreams" by Johnny Hates Jazz on his Hall of Justice Recording website. As he said of it on his site, "It's way dead serious, in a way. But kind of not, you know?"

Pretty true to the original, but fun. To check out more of Walla's solo work, see the songs page over at Hall of Justice.

that's pretty amusing. especially since i was a teenager when that song was out. They just don't make pop-rock-adult contemporary songs like they did in the 80's, haha!
