The Three Of Us

Hello friends. Just wanted to give you a heads up that This American Life is replaying The Break Up episode this week which is where our version of “The Three Of Us” originated from. TAL contributor Starlee Kine’s brain-mind. She, a non-musician, set out to write a pop song about a break up with a little help from Joe McGinty and Julia Greenberg…..and Phil Collins. Yes, and Phil Collins. Anyway, they (minus Phil) wrote a song and then had a remix/cover contest, which I entered. It was judged by the songwriters and Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis from Sound Opinions. You can see the contest results here.

It is a great episode. If you haven’t had a chance to hear it on your local NPR affiliate, you can download the podcast here for this week only. Also support them with monetary generosity.

  1. Hey guys,
    I just found you while I was researching about the “The Three of Us”. I’ve heard This American Life last weekend and loved the story behind the song. I loved your version, what took me to your other songs and I just wanted to tell you how much I liked them! I miss my dear DC so much but hopefully next time I visit the city I’ll see you playing at the 930!
    Cheers, J
