Blake Lewis channels Bobby Darin on Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle”
The “everything will be all right” message of Jimmy Eat World’s anthem is timeless — which makes it a perfect fit for a time-warping PMJ rendition! We drop American Idol Alum Blake Lewis into the middle of the ride for our version, so take some time to check it out:

Scott’s arrangement swaps out the power-pop crunch of Jimmy Eat World’s rocking guitars for the suave elegance of the classic Bobby Darin sound — “The Middle” by way of “Dream Lover!” Blake Lewis croons the song with a generous helping of Darin’s dapper suavity — a far cry from the infamous Jimmie Walker Blue, the buck-toothed redneck character that Lewis introduced on Idol.
The tune’s debonair swing just may be enough to convince you that everything will, in fact, be just fine — at least for the next four minutes or so!
