“Evangeline” – Matthew Sweet


From Sweet’s classic 1991 album “Girlfriend,” “Evangeline” is a terrific, crunchy, upbeat hard-rock love song. I’m not entirely sure who did the shredding guitar work on this song, but I believe it’s Sweet and Richard Lloyd (from the band Television). Sweet always had great taste in sidemen and production.

Arguably the best song ever written taking the perspective of a comic book character (Johnny Six from the 1980s comic “Evangeline”).
