A mystery of the arts

You know, musical science tells us that there should have been a wave of annoying, acoustic covers of Born in the USA done in minor keys and being completely unavoidable even though nobody liked them that much. And we should have gotten sick of people complaining that the minor-key covers missed the point of the song. The most amazing thing is that this should have happened a decade ago, certainly no later than 2015. There is no explanation for this gap in the field.

I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there. He/him.

  1. I’m quite certain these covers existed, but they only popped up on Coverville and on one of those SiriusXM stations I never listened to, because so what if I listened to 80s on 8 and First Wave and Backspin I’m not that out of touch


    1. Oh it’s no question that these covers existed. It’s that they should have become at minimum Internet Famous, if not Actually Famous, and that they failed to make that jump that’s a mystery. It’s like dark matter, but for guitars.
