The A.V. Club
March 14, 2011 AT 8:00 PM
If you're a careful follower of A.V. Undercover, you'll know that "One More Try" by George Michael is not actually on this year's list. Here's what happened: Iron And Wine's Sam Beam chose "Islands In The Stream" to cover, and had a special guest lined up to sing with him. That special guest couldn't make it at the last minute, and rather than have Sam pick a different song from the list, we let him play one that he'd been itching to do anyway (and a song that feels completely in the spirit of Undercover). We're hoping against hope that Iron And Wine and their special duet guest can come back before the end of the run and perform "Islands In The Stream" as sort of a bonus track. In the meantime: SPOILER ALERT! Though Iron And Wine was the first band to choose a song, they weren't the first to perform. So if you want to spoil some upcoming surprises, look closely at the wall. If you don't, then don't squint. Oh, and yes, that's Marketa Irglova from Undercover alums The Swell Season singing backup here!
