Snail Mail covers “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World” by Courtney Love (not that one): Stream

The rising songwriter's cover comes not from the Hole singer, but rather an obscure K Records band from the early '90s

    Snail Mail, the CoSigned musical endeavor of teenage wunderkind Lindsey Jordan, has shared a new song via the Amazon Originals series. It’s a cover of “The 2nd Most Beautiful Girl In The World”, a song by Courtney Love, the band, not the Hole singer.

    Yes, in the early ’90s, Olympia’s K Records hosted a collaboration between Lois Maffeo and Pat Maley called Courtney Love. They released a few 7-inches, including 1990’s Uncrushworthy, from which Jordan pulled the song. Jordan’s cover is characteristically spare, with Jordan’s cracking, wounded vocals joined only by her electric guitar.
