I was just listening to this lovely song with some lovely friends. We were all smiling and singing, and music is magic yet again. I really love Death Cab so much and have for so long (5th grade jams!). I saw them two years ago at Outside Lands and again a year ago at the Greek in Berkeley, and both shows were wonderful. My mother went with me to the show at the Greek and is now also a big Death Cab fan. His voice is just so magically smooth and melancholy and beautiful. I imagine that Death Cab is a band I’ll still be listening to in my late 80s.
I’ll very much miss the aforementioned friends, but at least we have music.
