Screeching Weasel - "You are My Sunshine"

You’ve probably heard this classic song at children’s sing-alongs, which was originally recorded in 1939 by the Pine Ridge Boys, and was eventually adopted by Louisiana as their state song. Although the guys in Screeching Weasel are far from Southern gentlemen since they came from the Chicago area, they also adopted “You are My Sunshine” for their Thank You Very Little Compilation. We don’t think that this cover really needs an explanation as to why it’s better than the original, but the reason is because it rocks and the original, well, doesn’t.
