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

how the heck did i sleep on this song for so long? it's like a pocket-universe of awesome : )

Love this song. Why is there no track for this song?
21 Apr 2009, 5:16pm
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.
10 Feb 2009, 9:48am
CSI has thrown this song into my playlist.

CSI ! Pulleth Me Over here ...

THE PUSH MORE THAN THE FAAAAAAAAALL.

This song is brilliant... and the ending is as well
12 Dec 2008, 10:50pm
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

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 =]

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.
24 Sep 2008, 4:57pm
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?
21 Sep 2008, 4:30pm
doesn't anybody else think that the intro to this song is the most annoying shit ever?
17 Sep 2008, 8:48am
@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.
14 Aug 2008, 5:19am
I find it pretty funny that the ending actually shocks anyone, much less makes them angry.
3 Aug 2008, 12:45pm
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.
10 Jul 2008, 2:02pm
I was wondering about that loud pop at the end. It scared the crap out of me the first time I heard this song.
20 Jun 2008, 4:58pm
hahahah. i like the song, without focusing so hard on the ending. it sounds good to me
31 May 2008, 3:29am
It really makes me want to play Donkey Kong..
22 May 2008, 10:54am
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!
19 May 2008, 7:35am
the ending is supposed to be like that. its called being original and not super predictable like most bands.
18 May 2008, 10:03am
Haha, thought my CD was glitched too during my first listen... Thanks for the clarification interpolarity
17 May 2008, 10:49pm
p.s. this song really rocks.
17 May 2008, 10:49pm
i think the ending was an awesome move. ballsy indeed. get used to it.

16 May 2008, 10:41pm
ehh, also don't like the ending. would have been better with a fade out...
16 May 2008, 8:12pm
WTF at the ending. Ruined it for me.
16 May 2008, 2:19am
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.
15 May 2008, 8:21pm
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.
15 May 2008, 8:04pm
i'm not sold on the abrupt ending, but maybe it'll grow on me?
15 May 2008, 7:01pm
Great track! I had to take it into GarageBand to put my own fadeout on it :) lol, Kolosomo X-D
14 May 2008, 4:23pm
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
14 May 2008, 12:25am
Funky. Groovy. Unexpectedly so.
13 May 2008, 12:37pm
i'd chose that as favourite track on the new album
11 May 2008, 6:42am
Sounds like the flaming lips
11 May 2008, 1:58am
The ending just kills me..
9 May 2008, 11:48am
Is it just me or have they really used tabla?
