These are the opening lines to Wilco’s 6th studio album Sky Blue Sky on the opening track “Either Way”. I particularly enjoy this track because it embodies the idea that everything has it’s plan and you can’t change the things that you don’t have control over.
Wilco recorded Sky Blue Sky in the Irving Park neighborhood of Chicago. This album was intended to differ from the original albums where lead singer/guitar player Jeff Tweedy believed the effects on the previous album were too overbearing for the material. He attributes most of the lyrical inspiration to The Byrds.
This is an exceptional Seasonal Transitional album that finds heavy rotation on my ipod in the end of fall/beginning of spring. Enjoy!
