You Tore Me Down

1990 bonus track #1 by Yo La Tengo

This was the song that turned me into a YLT fan twenty years ago. It isn't an original, but Fakebook showed their impeccable taste in cover songs along with their ability to make every song sound like one of theirs. There have been at least three covers of "You Tore Me Down" this year (by Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby, Paul Collins, and Invisible Cities) -- it's nice to see artists venturing into Groovieland beyond "Shake Some Action".
