nuckyboardwalk2012 The National cover Ill See You in My Dreams for Boardwalk Empire

From cartoon burger joints to Prohibition-era Atlantic City: The National’s latest cover version finds them reworking Isham Jones and The Ray Miller Orchestra’s 1924 song “I’ll See You in My Dreams” for last night’s episode of Boardwalk Empire. Accompanied by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, the band maintain the original’s quaint, old-timey aesthetic, with frontman Matt Berninger busting out a particularly forlorn baritone that imbibes the song’s message of romantic reunion with a steady undertone of gloom. Check it out below (via Fuck Yeah! The National).
