From Norfolk last Sunday (April 11). Two things: I saw Matt two days earlier in DC with some of my EOS sisters and when Matt sang this I was thrilled that I’d have something new for the Matt Covers catalog. In my heart of hearts I knew he was doing it just for me us!
Second, when Matt does the “google” hand-motion, I’m convinced he was watching us walk from the venue back to the car from his cushy bus window …because that’s exactly when the EOS gals were having this conversation about how when one talks about what they “said” online, they charade the “typing fingers”. Shame on you Matt (;
Oh and third: Notice when little Drop quietly shouts “matthires!!” he gives her a little sly smile. What a guy that MATTHIRES!!! is.
So without further ado, here is Matt doing a Chuck Willis cover of a The Band cover of Hang Up My Rock and Roll Shoes. Oh and thank you Liz Lemon for the video.
