Songs that Make me Smile.

My favourite song at the moment is: (drum roll...) Fake Empire by The National from their latest album, Boxer.

Favourite line is:
"Turn the light out, say goodnight.
No thinking for a little while.
Let's not try to figure out everything at once."

To hear it, click Here and it will start playing. Hurrah.

Not to be too nerdy, but the simultaneous 3/4 time, 4/4 time piano at the start is awesome and then the syncopated trumpet arrangement at the end just brings it all home. Who said trumpets were uncool? (I don't know James, who did said that? You tell me.)
