I love this song, but...

I wanted Andy to sing it.

**let me clarify**

Andy Skib (keyboards/guitar) and Neal Tiemann (lead guitar) are the driving force behind MWK (Midwest Kings). Neal wrote the songs, and Andy was the lead singer. MWK is one of my absolute favorite bands ever. I saw them way back when in Tulsa, and I've always really liked them. I'm *thrilled* that they're getting exposure. Those songs NEED to be heard. They're just that good.

I'm also a huge fan of Andy's side project: To Have Heroes. I go to Tulsa every time Andy has a To Have Heroes show. He frequently performs "Anodyne" (off of MWK's last release: the Luna Despierta EP). I'm used to that version. I actually LOVE that version. I posted his most recent THH performance as a video response to David's version. They're similar, but also very different.

I'm not slamming David's version at all. It was actually quite good, and it put a different spin on the song. I'm just a huge MWK fan (they're one of my all-time favorite bands), and I want Andy to be up there on the big stage, singing any MWK that they throw into the show. I felt the same way when they performed "Make Me" in Biloxi. David even somewhat agreed.

So... There's my .02 on the "Anodyne" thing. Regardless of who is singing, the song is beautiful. I hope you enjoy. :)

My opinion is only that. I love these boys. They're RIDICULOUSLY talented. ALL of them. I don't understand why people feel the need to leave nasty comments and accuse me of all kinds of things that are hysterically off-base.

Kindly remove any panties that might've gotten wadded up along the way, relax, and enjoy the music.

Isn't that why we're here? :)
