Song In My Head #107: “Jackie” by the New Pornographers

I’ve always loved Carl Newman‘s music, but for some reason I tend to gravitate toward the New Pornographers songs sung by his bandmates instead. “Jackie” was penned by Dan Bejar, who sings it on the NPs’ 2000 debut Mass Romantic. When I saw the New Pornographers play Noise Pop in 2002, Bejar was not touring with the band, so drummer Kurt Dahle rendered an excellent lead vocal. Dahle has since left the lineup, so I wonder who sings the song in concert these days. I certainly hope someone does!
