I think I listened to this track on repeat on my first CD player when I was about 12 or 13. I'm glad to know that the song is still that good and that I wasn't just being (much of) an emo tween at the time!
my 12 year old son just learned adam's part on this. we sang it on the way to school this morning at top volume, with me on the harmony vocal, and it made me cry after i dropped him off.
holy crap. this song is just so amazing, and to have my kid fall in love with it makes me feel epicly old, and timeless somehow. what a thing to share with him.
thank you crows, thank you adam, for this masterwork.
