Hello Blocland Faithful. Doris, Your God, here.

While perusing my Spotify sidebar I saw famed Blocland Contributor Lemonjello listening to The Strokes covering Marvin Gaye’s excellent song “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology).”

I thought to myself, “Hmmm. This shall be a neat take. I must take a listen.”

I was not prepared for what happened next.

I clicked the PLAY button and let the song take me. The instruments sounded true but then something happened. I tilted my head in wonder. My ears and heart were in shock. A human of weaker character would have succumb to the grave.

“This must be a ploy by Lucifer herself” I pondered to myself.

For I was expecting to hear Strokes’ frontman Julian Mattlebanca croon Gaye’s tune but instead what I believe I heard was Edward Vedder of Pearl Jam. Doris is dumbfounded. I don’t know what to believe. This is where you, the reader, come in.

Please let the author know who this mysterious singer is. It will make my day. Perhaps a treat is in play for the truest answer.

    As soon as I saw this headline, I knew you saw me listening to this. And this was also my exact experience. “The hell? Is this Eddie Vedder?”

    Weird choice to have SOPHIE produce this track too.

    It’s JP Bowersock
