Guys. That song is a monster.
Yeah, it is. Definitely one of my favorites, but, again, I just don't know where to place it.

Fake Empire is the best song of the last ten years.

Ok, that's a bullshit pulled-from-the-ass observation, but it's not as though one could dismiss it without at least a few moments' reflection.

Also, I'm a bit surprised to see Apartment Story held in such high regard. It's a great song, but it wouldn't rank even within the top five from Boxer in my estimation - not that my estimation is canonical, or even worth considering for that matter.

Apartment Story strikes me as one of the most uniquely romantic songs of the last decade, and I love the odd structure to the verses and choruses and bridges and whatever. "Tired and wired we ruin too easy" is one of my favorite lines as well.

Yeah, it's the best.

Thank god that iron yuppie's estimation isn't canonical. We'd all be fucking doomed.

I should probably put a with that, because I'm just messin around.

But I don't play that shit. Smilies are for people that don't have either Apartment Story or Fake Empire in their top 10.
