Watch Dashboard Confessional's Acoustic Rolling Stone Session

December 21, 2009 12:00 AM ET

Last month, Dashboard Confessional unleashed their sixth album of the decade, Alter the Ending. As Rolling Stone reported, the release came as a standard disc and a special edition bundled with acoustic versions of the album's dozen songs. When Chris Carrabba and John Lefler stopped by the RS offices recently, we made them recreate the acoustic experience by stripping down "Get Me Right" and "Belle of the Boulevard." Watch "Get Me Right" up top and "Belle" after the jump.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
