There’s no way anyone could have predicted American Aquarium would be treating us with a cover of Patty Loveless. But here we are. As part of their Slappers, Bangers & Certified Twangers, Vol. 1, a collection of their favorite ‘90s country songs, Loveless’ “I Try to Think About Elvis” takes center stage.
Not only does BJ Barham’s voice sound better than ever, he leaves the lyrics untouched. “I try to think about high heels and good deals / Anything to get me through,” he sings, sliding up on the end. “I just can’t concentrate / You’re all I think about these days.” It’s groovy, baby, groovy!
