I Just Wanna Be (Like Moi).

How deep do you feel that piano in this live cover of Hey, Jude, by Overton Berry Trio? Sooooo deep. And the title I Just Wanna Be (Like Myself) surely signals a song that is about as shallow as the singer's narcissism, right? Or does it?? Listen closely. And the way the drums roll out the red carpet for the other instruments to strut over in Cissy Strut, only to roll all of them up into a relentless drum solo, and then slowly let them squirm out again. Feel this.
