My Morning Jacket w/ Neko Case - "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around"

"Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" was Stevie Nicks' first single as a solo artist back in 1981. The track was written by Tom Petty and Heartbreakers' guitarist Mike Campbell and featured the entire Heartbreakers crew as Nicks' backing band. Although Nicks and Petty would collaborate on a number of songs—"The Insider," "The Apartment Song," "Needles & Pins"—"Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" would be their most successful, charting at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The classic duet has been dug up this summer as an encore for My Morning Jacket's current tour with Neko Case, pairing the fiery red head with Jim James. As various Youtube clips show, they absolutely nail the cover. Now all we need is Case to join MMJ in the studio and inject one of the world's greatest live rock bands with some fresh creative juice. If the rather meandering and flat Circuital is any proof, they could use a little fire. (via)
