Song of the Day #4,888: ‘Walken’ – Wilco

Here’s a track from Wilco’s sixth studio album, 2007’s Sky Blue Sky. Despite its title, it is not about Christopher Walken.

I’m a big fan of Wilco’s early releases, but for some reason they dropped off my radar after 2001’s wonderful Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. They’ve released seven albums in the two decades since and I don’t think I’ve heard any of them all the way through.

That’s probably my loss, because I always like what I hear from the band. That includes today’s SOTD, a simple love song that does a lot of interesting things musically.

[Chorus 1]
I’m walking
All by myself
I was talking to myself about you
What am I going to do

I was singing
This song about you
I was thinking about singing
This song for you

[Chorus 2]
The more I think about it
The more I know it’s true
The more I think about it
The more I’m sure it’s you
Honey I think you’re just right
You’re just right

[Chorus 1]
I was walking
Like I said by myself
I was talking
To myself about you
Like I always do
[Chorus 2]
