Best Songs With "Hide" To Seek For Your Listening Pleasure
John Lennon Supposedly Wrote A "Hide" Song For Manager Brian Epstein
Both The Beatles And The Stones Made The List
Wilco has new album coming out next week, and its title is Ode To Joy. The first single, released to promote the record, also has a delightful video currently streaming on line.
Shot in Jeff Tweedy's home town of Chicago, "Everyone Hides" features the band members hiding out in different sites throughout the Windy City.
Tweedy admitted on Rolling Stone's website that it is the first video in which the members of Wilco have appeared in over twenty years, so it is a welcome treat for fans of one of the most respected alternative acts.
The new single also allows Wilco to join a list of artists who have recorded titles with some form of the verb hide, including such famous bands as The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Here is a fourteen track example of songs featuring "Hide" or a form of it.
