To most people this song reminds you of the feelings beautiful, sad, simple, and lovely articulated words. But do me a favor, all of you, quite listening to this song on MP3 players. Get a real stereo. You haven't heard this song properly until it's played from an HD player, via a 24-96 DAC and speakers that have a woofer and tweeter. I, beg you, please don't listen to it on headphones. Find a friend who knows a friend who has a stereo with separate components. You know who you are and invite them into your life of music. If you think this song is gorgeous, this song eclipses the movie "Avatar and Star Trek," when it comes to reproducing those low electronic, wavering notes. You owe Frou Four until you find someone with that sound system. If you lived in the midwest, I would welcome you with open arms. My picture says it all: find that amplifier and "the dumbing down of love," surrounds you with outrageously blissful sounding music. Help me to help you see the light.
the thing that amazes me about this song is that the section that says "music is worthless unless it can make a complete stranger break down and cry" is precisely the moment in this song where i always basically break down and cry. GREAT stuff.
