footnotes from listening to my television blare
Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside performed I Swear, from their first full-length release, Dirty Radio, on The Late Show with David Letterman. While this song is not my absolute no.#1 favorite song from the album (my own preferences lean towards Write Me a Letter, and Where Did You Go as singles) the band’s appearance on Letterman provides a good excuse to post a Sallie Ford track. You can download an mp3 of I Swear for free if you visit the US Amazon site.
Also, you should visit the OPB Music site to hear their cover of Whole Wide World by Wreckless Eric, just because.

Paisley really adds a touch of soul and angst to the song that could come across schmaltzy in lesser hands. Just a great version of this song.
