Or every teenage loner who learns how to play it on their acoustic guitar and sing it in the grass at a picnic lunch. Yep, fucking thing sucks!

There's a guy I'm friends with at work who has it as his ring tone for his wife. I've yet to have the heart to tell him how incredibly cliche and cheesy it is as a ring tone.

I actually think "What Sarah Said" is the better song about a loved one dying. It just feels a lot less forced. "Follow" is a nice enough song, but it's fairly obvious and feels contrived, like it accomplished its goal when it accumulated the audience it did.

As far as affecting goes, though, it doesn't really get better than "Transatlanticism." They really nail it live every time. At risk of sounding like one of the crying girls during "Follow," "Transatlanticism" last night was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life, as my ex who I plan on never talking to again held my hand for the duration.

"Follow" sounds like something John Mayer would write, which adds a whole new layer of comedy to it.

"Passenger Seat" is the one that destroys me, but I can see Tranny being epic live.

On top of that, I consider The Postal Service album to be better than anything Death Cab's ever put out. Good thing we'll see a follow-up to that soon...

"Passenger Seat" did the same for me with my high school girlfriend, who I didn't realize has Plans written all over her until they played "Yr Heart is an Empty Room" for the second song last night.

But yeah, "Transatlanticism" last night. That sucked.

EDIT - Found it!



I am still looking for him in that picture.

When he turns sideways, he disappears. If he was any skinnier, he wouldn't exist.

They're apparently on Conan tonight. Will Ben look normal or like a freak show?

Yes. And I hope they play "Little Bribes." That song rules.

Did that EP get a physical release, or was it digital only? I've still not seen it anywhere.

Hey! They did play "Little Bribes." All because of me. And it was awesome. I like that song more than the majority of Narrow Stairs. And Mr. Deschanel is still skinny, but he sounded really good.

I've only heard it twice, and I already agree with this. Fun song, it's a shame it wasn't on the album for more people to hear it.

Death Cab tune from the upcoming TWYLYTE 2: Electric Boogaloo soundtrack? Eh, why not:

Pitchfork: Hear a New Death Cab for Cutie Song

It's better than just about everything on Narrow Stairs.
