Wasn't the question you asked me
It wasn't the answer I gave
That made me feel like I was on a train
Was a distant voice

    "Wasn't the question you asked me, it wasn't the answer I gave, that made me feel like I was on a train. Was a distant voice, made me make a choice, that I had to get the fuck out of this town" My new favourite song I think!

    los campesinos' version is pretty good, the perfect intro to YMD!.

    Los campesinos! covered it live tonight! They're no pavement, but they did it justice for sure.

    this song is more than excellent. Big fan of the Westing version.

    This would be a really unremarkable song without the last line, but that line makes it brilliant.

    I hate to say it but this version slays the original.
