    I'd rather be The Beatles because they're leagues better than the Rolling Stones.

    "When Lou Reed asked me, 'Emily Haines, who would you rather be, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones,' I shot back, 'The Velvet Underground.' Quick thinking, sure, but also the truth." ... Love that. You're a class act, Ms. Haines, as was he (and this is a ridiculously good song)

    I like Metric, but this track came up for me on Yeah Yeah Yeahs radio; what is interesting to me about that is that it punctuated how the YYYs' sound has moved from obvious New York punk influence to a New Wave sound.

    Can't decide if this song or the unplugged version is my favorite Metric song.

    I get chills every time I hear her sing "I can feel it in my bones". :-)

    that guitar is perfect. ...all the chances that we took we're so close to something that we left unknown....
