The National – “I’ll See You in My Dreams” (Isham Jones Cover)

By Tom Breihan / November 19, 2012

Lately, the National seem to be intent on forcing their way into every show on our collective DVR. Earlier today, we posted their cover of the Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving song. And a few months ago, they contributed a song called “The Rains Of Castamere” to the Game Of Thrones soundtrack. And now they’ve gone period-specific with a song that appeared on last night’s episode of Boardwalk Empire. With a cover of Isham Jones And The Ray Miller Orchestra’s 1924 jazz tune “I’ll See You In My Dreams,” they leave behind moody indie rock and go full-on swing. Hear their version of the song below.
