Drowning In A Well of Sadness Part Five: Uncle Tupelo

Uncle Tupelo were a very fine band. They took from a radical tradition and did amazing versions of traditional songs such as Moonshiner and Coalminer. But Life Worth Living is their contributions to a modern classic. They seemed to understand about the daily grind of working – something not many musicians sing realistically about.

Looks like we’re all looking for a life worth livin’
That’s why we drink ourselves to sleep
Yeah, we’re all looking for a life worth livin’
That’s why we pray for our souls to keep
