    The song is awesome, but it's not a DCFС, it's Velveteen - Fireworks.

  • Avatar for nr2solace
    Love this song. Why is there no track for this song?
  • Avatar for cheesesandwich
    pulling some Beatles shit right here. Though I doubt Ben Gibbard has ever meditated in India. Or has he?...

    I had this for months before CSI forced me to listen to it. Good stuff.
  • Avatar for rbt200
    CSI has thrown this song into my playlist.

    This song is brilliant... and the ending is as well
  • Avatar for licoricepizza
    well, if Ben and Chris liked the way it ended (due to the misfortunate accident with the tape), i think it's clever on their part. it left them with an option that they probably didn't think of (when they initially constructed the arrangement of the track).

    I kee being more impressed by this album; I love all of it
  • Avatar for xbrokenstar
    I liked DeathCab for awhile, and this song was on CSI's episode, and i never heard this song before, and i love it. The lyrics are amazing =]
  • Avatar for CipherSwarm
    I can't say I like the ending. It doesn't sound “artistic”, it's more like someone tripped over the line in to the recording rig.
  • Avatar for NCraike
    If anyone "invented" the abrupt ending, it was The Beatles on "She's So Heavy". On Abbey Road. In 1969.

    "I find it pretty funny that the ending actually shocks anyone" What the fuck are you?
  • Avatar for Susiekins
    doesn't anybody else think that the intro to this song is the most annoying shit ever?
  • Avatar for inphanta
    @kornypony: why on earth are you comparing Portishead with DCFC? Neither group invented the abrupt ending, so just because both happen to have songs that feature them, it doesn't mean there was any competitive intent.
  • Avatar for BTape
    I find it pretty funny that the ending actually shocks anyone, much less makes them angry.
  • Avatar for kornypony
    i found it interesting comparing the abrupt ending of this song to the one in "Silence", the first song on Portishead's new album, "Third", which was released 2 weeks ahead of Narrow Stairs. No offence to DCFC fans (for I am one myself) but I would say that Portishead used the sudden ending with much more artistic connotation. IMHO Pity and Fear would sound better fading out.

    I got it off of Amazon, thought something went wrong with the download and contacted them about re-downloading the track. Guess I can stop emailing their support now.
  • Avatar for nicolemalena
    I was wondering about that loud pop at the end. It scared the crap out of me the first time I heard this song.
  • Avatar for sbwaverider37
    hahahah. i like the song, without focusing so hard on the ending. it sounds good to me
  • Avatar for Range341
    It really makes me want to play Donkey Kong..
  • Avatar for JohnnyTaylor
    Wahoo for tapes! This is why they should still manufacture them. A much more personal and characteristic way of recording. Instead of "write and delete" digital. Eurgh!
  • Avatar for drussellsdct
    the ending is supposed to be like that. its called being original and not super predictable like most bands.
  • Avatar for Astronick
    Haha, thought my CD was glitched too during my first listen... Thanks for the clarification interpolarity
  • Avatar for midk
    p.s. this song really rocks.
  • Avatar for midk
    i think the ending was an awesome move. ballsy indeed. get used to it.
  • Avatar for alialialiiiiii
    reallllly interesting!
  • Avatar for ttangel
    Great song.
  • Avatar for jzting
    ehh, also don't like the ending. would have been better with a fade out...
  • Avatar for XplicitNG
    WTF at the ending. Ruined it for me.
  • Avatar for teshsayspeace
    could be my favourite song on the album -- so far i don't like the abrubt ending, but it doesn't ruin the song for me.
  • Avatar for MarioPrime
    The ending is so I Want You (She's So Heavy) by The Beatles. That's what it reminded me of! I really like that they did that. It's a ballsy step.
  • Avatar for pitchforkerr
    i'm not sold on the abrupt ending, but maybe it'll grow on me?
  • Avatar for Post-Rocker
    Great track! I had to take it into GarageBand to put my own fadeout on it :) lol, Kolosomo X-D
  • Avatar for lassaucepan
    hahah i thought there was a glitch in my CD at the end of this song...but i guess its supposed to be like that? i dont really that end...good song though otherwise
  • Avatar for AgentZero
    Funky. Groovy. Unexpectedly so.
  • Avatar for RobertTrujillo
    i'd chose that as favourite track on the new album
  • Avatar for Shichman
    Sounds like the flaming lips
  • Avatar for samsnicefm
    The ending just kills me..
  • Avatar for rupsydroopsy
