I believe
You've had some-
thing that's mine
All this time
So to sing along, cry
Fork it over

I live among
The alarms
Where I trip
Where they sing
So to sing along, cry
Hey, come over

Uh Uh - Uh Uh - Uh Oh-

Up the hill
Goes the type-
writered beat
Of my step
So to sing along, cry
Undiscover

And all the years
At quarter speed
Haloed and
Trembling clean
So to sing along, cry
Turning over

Uh Uh - Uh Uh - Uh Oh-

Slo-o-o-ow do-o-o-own la-a-a-a-die-e-e-es
Slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow do-o-o-o-o-o-o-own

These things get louder
These things get louder

The lava alarms
And your true
Villain love
Are kept at bay
So to sing along, cry
Like you wrote it

Will the beams
Be broke and crossed
Motion sensed
It's all heat
So to sing along, cry
It's not over

Uh Uh - Uh Uh - Uh Oh-

Slo-o-o-ow do-o-o-own la-a-a-a-die-e-e-es
Slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow do-o-o-o-o-o-o-own

These things get louder
These things get louder

So to sing along, cry
So to sing along, cry

You with all your moves
You with all your moves
You with all your moves
You with all your moves

Warbling, out-of-key, poorly enunciated, meaningless lyrics.

Still gets a 10.

Ha ha! When this began, I instantly thought of the Waitresses' Christmas Wrapping!

Are they singing "Bee Stings get louder"?

 
Yes.

OK, not really, but yes.
Such a catchy song, and that AC Newman is a handsome fellow, judging by the video. Wait, whaaat?
 I can't get enough of Neko's voice on New Pornographer tracks.

this is weirdly delightful.


Ahhh A C Newman & Co.

Good schtuff. Did Neko sing backup on this?
nit sure how this could be worse

Anyone else hear the drummer miss a snare hit around 2 1/2 minutes in? 

 
Sorry, I left my stopwatch in the TARDIS; I'll listen for it next time..
I see movies when I listen to this song. Great !
And now it's followed by Grieg's Mountain King ... more pictures!

''contender for best drummer in Canada'' ? WTF! He will have to wait for Neil Peart to expire.

Whatever Kurt Dahle did, I can assure you he did it on purpose. A strong contender for best drummer in Canada. Pretty sure he would ask for another take if he screwed up.

 



 

Okay...that's what I was going to say. lol  (Minus the "wtf"...lets keep it clean for the kids on here...if there are any left that is.)

Neil...your thoughts?

Unless you're the composer, or are following along with the composer's sheet music, you do not know if he 'missed' anything.
...bee stings....get louder...{#Sunny}

One would think.  It's just that it was the only place in the entire song that it happens, even when they repeat the phrase in all other places. I don't hear that dramatic drop in dynamics in any other part and there's no counterpoint to it at all from any of the other players.  It just leaves a big hole in the rhythm for an awkward moment...

But agreed that it's hard to believe it's that it's that nobody noticed...  then again, once in a while mistakes slip through...

Agreed. I love them, but there's something familiar about this one...

I dig this song, but wish it wasn't being used in at least two national (Canada) ad campaigns right now: Hyundai (I think) and T-Mobile.  Not that I think they've "sold out", it just annoys me.
 
I'm with you. First time I heard it I was split between "Good for them," and "I wish this wasn't in a commercial."

Oh, and the video is pretty great.

Did I just hear this song on TV yesterday... maybe a commercial??

Its good....took a few listens for me to get into it, but worth having.
Hahahaha!  That said, not sure about the hahahas in this song.  That's not my favorite part.

Being a successful pornographer is more challenging than you think.

Yes. It's a bit inyerface, but overall I think this works.

Very much an ELO vibe with the cello intro. 

BTW, love the Max Headroom icon.  Do you appreciate the juxtaposition, Max Headroom is Matt Frewer, who is a Canuck (albeit born in DC) as are the New Pornographers (allowing Neko Case to be an honourary Canuck)?
 
{#Eh} {#Stupid} ...Ahhh yes, of course ha ha ha, that's exactly what I was trying to illustrate. I was hoping that someone would pick up on that Max Headroom/Neko Case connection.....well spotted {#Clap}. Bye now, I must be off .......................{#Motor}

I like the use of the double bass in this track. Gives it a nice edge.

I can hear that!  I guess there's nothing new under the sun, as the wise man once said.

Geez o man!  I have been intending to go to the fridge to get my post-lunch yogurt but this set has been rockin' too much to pull myself away. 

...is that the same cover artist as middle cyclone?..the handwriting looks quite similar...
This entire album is just fantastic!
I LOVE new songs.... my one little rating can make such a big difference!
