I heard this song today, and it reminded me of like, Death Cab mixed with Snow Patrol or maybe the Proclaimers with a touch of something reminiscent of The Samples. I was having a weird moment though, where I needed to identify and categorize and compare. The next song was The Black Kids, who I decided were a combination of The Cure, and The Go! Team.
Frightened Rabbit / Swim til You Can’t See Land
The Black Kids / Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance
I guess this last bit could also be an SOD, but I’m including it more because I’m in a moony-romantic sort of mood, and I love the juxtaposition of Will Ferrell as the staid taxman, pursuing the anarchic Maggie Gylenhal baker character, and the vulnerability of him playing this song and her watching, unbeknownst to him.
Wreckless Eric/Will Ferrell / Whole Wide World
