I MADE THE BEST OF IT
i am in love.
this song is beautiful.
EVERYONE WHO PRETENDED TO LIKE ME IS GONE --- THE WALKMEN
hamilton has a real gift for saying a lot with a little. there is very little in this song. it has this great bleak energy. the way it all builds up - the drums. holy shit. always the drums, with the walkmen. if the rat is as hopeless as you can be, this song is how you got there. "i made the best of it." over the organ and the drums and that fantastic reverby guitar, over loops of itself, over everything - "i made the best of it." i did all i can do. i did all i can do. this is a perfect song for the fall. leaves crunching beneath your feet. you are walking with your head down. you did all you could do.
