Arcade Fire - You Already Know
And here I was thinking I was clever to come up with Halloweek so I’d be able to steal Arcade Fire from Andrew (he still managed to slip a song in his Halloween playlist). While I thought it was a good idea at the time I now am faced with trying to choose just one song from Reflektor to share with you. My thing with AF is that they’ve always been consistently great, if not the most “consistently great” band ever. With Reflektor being one of the most hyped and anticipated albums of the year, there was a lot of room for them to fail. They didn’t. The only way I could choose was by picking the song that jumped out at me first.
I leave you with this wonderful quote from The Colbert Report:
Stephen: What do you like more - getting people to listen to your lyrics, and think about the message of like, isolation in the modern world, or getting them on the dance floor to shake that ass?
Win Butler: I guess, ideally, you’d be shaking your ass with a little tear in the eye.
NAILED IT. This was such an obvious choice this week.
You should already have the album.
You already know,
