    What @ruinedtwo said: the Letterman performance of this song is one of the greatest things ever. Go search "sometime around midnight letterman" on YouTube and I think you'll see what we mean.

    The performance of this song on Letterman years ago was one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen. Still gives me chills when I watch it.
