“Care of Me” is the hidden track closing out Morning Glory’s latest, Poets Were My Heroes. It’s an odd duck, even on a political punk rock album littered with horns and strings and piano and driving anthems and group shots. It’s a piano-based ballad with Dylanesque folk warble and Kink’s barroom philosophizing (ever heard “Alcohol”?), ending with a locked-arm, swaying chorus to make any Irish pub proud.
