What am I missing? Is there some great secret to this song that I'm just not getting?
IT'S A TOWN FULL OF LOSERS, I'M PULLIN' OUT OF HERE TO WINNNNNNN.

It's like it's a person torn between pessimism (when it comes its so so disappointing,
crushed like a bug in the ground, etc)
and hope for the future (one day I am gonna grow wings, you'll know where you are with, etc).

Then, the vocals split and you actually have both of them going on at the
same time, one in each ear, and it's like it's a battle for which one is going to
win out. I think the hopeful one does, mostly because of the music."

There is no describing my love for that song.

My entry: "Last Goodbye" - Jeff Buckley.

it's one of those songs you had to discover as a teenager and experience live. still brings back the memories. i guess you had to be there.

Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.

I suppose that I will simply restate that which I posted in a thread here a few days ago: "In any case, I still consider this song to be the crowning achievement of modern music- agonizingly beautiful in a way that no other track has ever approached."
