one of my favorite songs of all time, and a certified classic for acoustic emo exorcisms

The second half of this cover is high-energy in an unexpected way imo. And the harmonies at 2:33 hit me like a truck.

Random fun fact – Alicia has recently confirmed that she's completely self-taught. Hasn't taken any guitar or singing lessons. Some quotes from comment replies:

Quote"i just looked at the initial chords on google, watched a lot of tutorials on youtube and i learned after practicing everyday :)"

"i've never taken a singing class, but around 2017 i started to get more interested and research vocal techniques, even though i still don't really know any lol"

"i grew up playing guitar hero and watching disney channel lol. so when i was 11 or 12, i realized that i wanted to be a singer :)"

Description: "it was a little difficult to sing and play at the same time, but i hope you don't mind the mistakes."

Video: Effortless studio-quality performance with no mistakes.

Probably some of her best guitar play ever. Also, the vocals in the first verse are ridiculously clean.

i don't think i could stand to be where you don't see me ~

Two weekends ago Mitski released Laurel Hell. It's been 8 years since Francis Forever and the song still cuts.
Water signs, fasten your seatbelts. Lyrics we know, feelingz for twilight 'til dawn.

Warning: This cover has dangerous levels of cuteness. Proceed with caution.

This like her other Pixies cover (which is up to 2.6 million views btw). She owns the weirdness of the original but very much gives it her own spin. The added layers are especially good here, and the new guitar sounds sharp.
