Jordan Witzigreuter, popularly known as The Ready Set, recently came out with a new three-tracked EP, I’ll Be Waiting that contained two original songs and sneaked in a cover of The Wallflower’s 1997 hit “One Headlight”.
While the original is soft and deep, The Ready Set’s take on this song- bringing it up an octave for the majority of the song and bringing in a female vocalist- makes the song almost more emotional, and definitely presents the song such an original way that no one would suspect it wasn’t his own song. It’s lighter and brighter, but I think the weight of the lyrics themselves carry through even in this version.
Probably one of the best things about the original- and of course, the cover- is that the story told in this song means something different to everyone. The song is in whole a large metaphor; the kind of song that you can sit and think about or sing and dance to. Which The Ready Set is really great at doing.
So go check it out, as well as the rest of I’ll Be Waiting and let me know! It’s been awhile since The Ready Set put out any music, it’s nice to know he’s been working hard.
Love you guys!
