been a massive fan of the strokes for years, but for some reason how brilliant this song is has just clicked with me. "The hateful things you think you want to say; time will turn them into jokes" one of my favourite lines
I'm a really big fan of the Strokes, and although this song is definitely underrated, I'd have to say it's my favorite. The slow-fast transition and the forever-misinterpreted Julian Casablancas singing really gets to me in this track.
And I am pretty sure it is about 15 minutes of fame and how quickly it can go by to the point where it never even felt real. For example:
“Everybody at the party/ shouldn’t worry what they wear,/ ‘cause today they talk about us/ and tomorrow they won’t care”
“This whole life is it a dream? I can’t tell./ I got up, then I waved, then I fell.”
Yeah. I really enjoy this song. :P
