I generally prefer the more recent Decemberists stuff (like Crane Wife onwards), but this is one of the greatest songs ever written. I'm never gonna get bored of this
Some way to greet the year
Your eyes all bright and brimmed with tears
The pilgrims, pills and tourists here all sing
"Fifty-three bucks to buy a brand new halo"
and the world may be long for you, but he'll never belong to you
What?! I can't believe I haven't heard this song before!
The best song they've ever written. I don't have a single doubt in my mind about it.
Am I feeling better now?
the pretty lalalaa at the end and then straight into I'M A LEEEEGIONNAIRE, pretty great
It is that very Grace Cathedral Hill. Song still breaks my heart. So beautiful.
does anyone know if the grace cathedral he mentions is the one in San Francisco, CA?
love love love
honestly one of their greatest songs, and one of my favorite songs of all time, something so beautiful it. "i paid twenty-five cents to light a little white candle..."
This song makes me happy/sad.
This song makes me go all introspective...great stuff...

This song is so simply beautiful, along with the rest of the album.

There are few better Decemberists songs than this one. Marvellous!
Everytime I hear "are you feeling better now" for the first time in my head I get a big smile and nod to myself "YES!"
Of the albums I have (1st 2) this is the best ballad.
