Song of the Day, May 15: Me Against Me by John Wesley Harding

WesMeMeToday’s song is the centerpiece of John Wesley Harding’s wonderful fourth album, Why We Fight. The disc looks at a variety of human conflicts from the geopolitical to the interpersonal. On this poignant track, Wes explores the most fundamental conflict — one man against himself. The lyrics are a smart narrative that read like a tragic love song but the one he needs to break up with is the one person he can’t leave. It’s a wonderfully crafted song delivered with just the right measure of wistfulness, showcasing one of Wes’ finest vocals.

And they say that it’s them and it’s us And they’ll tell you it’s you and it’s me But now I can see that it’s me against me

Enjoy this pensive tune today.
