That reminds me of this:



I struggle to choose favorite songs by this band……they're just so consistently great, it's hard…..Mistaken for Strangers would be up there for sure. Start a War, too. Oh, and I adore England, so, there's that.

I have not seen that movie, I'm sure that won't surprise you.

As LM mentioned, there's like 15-20 songs by this band that are perfect (and England is definitely one of them). No clear-cut leader.

I assumed you hand't but you didn't need prior knowledge of it to understand why your post reminded me of the beginning of the clip….

England is so fucking sublime….

No, and I had a good laugh when I clicked play.

I love the whole song, but especially the trumpet blast, which sort of signals the amazing crescendo.

For reasons I can't quite explain I'd always say Fake Empire if asked to pick just one.

That is basically my number one song of the decade it came from.

The moment where the horns kick in during the live version of Fake Empire is by far the best part of their show.

Really underappreciated moment: the last 10-15 seconds of Mistaken for Strangers. I'm not sure what instrument is making that sound, but it's very haunting and beautiful, a really stark contrast to the rest of the song.

At the moment my 4 would be:

Green Gloves
Secret Meeting
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Mistaken For Strangers

Could change in the next couple of minutes though. National are consistently stellar.

Hell yes. I love that so fucking much.

It's really similar to the sound in the background of Wolf at the Door towards the end, although not as depressing. I'd love to know the instruments used, if they're the same.

That's the point sometimes with great lyrics. It doesn't have to mean anything concrete, but if it sounds cool and it creates great images in your head, that's a great lyric.

It helps that it probably does mean something. I mean, on some level.

Abstract lyricism can be equally effective as something that literally has meaning. But it's all relative. Lyrics that pretend to be "abstract" can just be random bullshit and the majority of wonderful lyrics mean naturally a lot of things.

It's not even that abstract anyway. It's the National's 'lost weekend' song. (one of several arguably)
