Oh man this song is epic. I also remember how at 2:27 Matt Berninger, the singer, jumped in the crowd, and my sister got to hug him and I brushed his beard and patted him on the back. He also threw his wine at us. Felt like time stopped for a second there. So that was hilarious.
holy. fuck. this was my favorite song forever and i didn't listen to it for ages. and now it hit me like crazy. i played invisible drums, clapped like i was seeing them live, and hugged myself. it was amazing. 
oceanseacrest // Sorry for ruining the surprise for you. But this could be the best live song by anyone. Certainly The National's best, along with Terrible Love. During Mr. November Matt almost always jumps out into the crowd. So be prepared. I cried when this song came on, when I saw them live in Mars earlier this year. And I bet you will too.
