How To Fight Loneliness

Christmas is less than a week away. How did that happen? Last time I looked around, it was October. This tour is like a tunnel.

Now all my friends and family are going to hate me because I won't even have a chance to do any Christmas shopping until the 23rd. Bring on the late presents!


But you, my loyal blog readers, will get your gift on time. Let me ruin the surprise. It's a song. Okay...a sad song. As it does get lonely on the road, I've recorded a cover version of Wilco's "How To Fight Loneliness." I put this one together in my hotel room in Philly the other day.

To listen, just click the link. To download, right click the link (ctrl-click on Mac) and choose "Save Link As."

I know this song's a little bleak for Christmas, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Just a small thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Happy Holidays to you all.

  3. Mmm... Wilco's a great band.
    And that's a great cover. I like it a lot.

    Love, Susie

  4. Mike + Wilco = Match made in Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, you're my favorite solo artist and Wilco's my favorite band. This is better than King Kong vs. Titanic.

    YOU ROCK!!!!!!

  5. Boston!! Welcome to my hometown :]
    I saw the show last night, you got kicked off of your keyboard frequently!

  6. Zapewne i tak nikt nie zrozumie co napisałam, ale fajny blog masz ;D

  7. i love the song! its amazing..

  8. Mike,
    Love your blog. Been checking it out. I love the perspective from the band members of the tour. My kid is one of those thousands screaming kids you see almost every night. I enjoy your music. Seen some pictures of Miley looking like she kicked you off your keyboards. My kid asked why I couldn't play for Miley like you. I said because I am not that fortunate and don't have connections. (=
    Good luck with the rest of the tour. Merry Christmas!

  9. I love the song! Could you post the lyrics?
    I feel lonely sometimes too. It's a really sad song, but sort of inspirational-ish.
    Happy Holidays!
