WAKEY! WAKEY! “Say It Ain’t So” (Weezer Cover) MP3

Wakey! Wakey!

Mike Grubs aka WAKEY! WAKEY! will finally release his debut full-length Silent As A Movie December 12. But knowing what it takes to penetrate the blogsphere there is usually something bloggers love to post. What’s that you ask? Covers of course! Bloggers love posting something “different” or “exclusive” and usually they end up posting covers.

So in an effort to claim some of that sphere, WAKEY! WAKEY! has been releasing a cover song a week 10 weeks leading into the release of his debut. But this time he gave CMJ an exclusive. I’ve never heard too many covers of this song and I highly doubt I’ll ever find a cover that can top the original unless they’ve taken the effort to rearrange the song into some club thumpin’ electro tune. But what Mike Grubs did with Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” isn’t so bad.  Instead of the gut wrenching guitars he has dark and minimalist piano.  He has his slow tuned moody vocals that nicely lays over the piano.  Now though the dark vibe of the song can be transposed as heartfelt emotion, it just doesn’t seem to capture the beauty of the original.  River Cumos may have lost his touch for writing emotionally drenched pop songs, but “Say It Ain’t So” is a classic.
