And He Woos Me Again...

Yep, I just got the new Death Cab for Cutie album Plans at Rasputin in Campbell. I went on a CD frenzy! I also bought (again) the album of The Postal Service for $6 since it got stolen from my car early this year, and Maximo Park for $9. Anyway, I also bought some old albums of Longwave for $3, Polyphonic Spree for $5, The Debut soundtrack for $3 (since my cousin borrowed it and never returned it), the newest British Sea Power for $9 (that CD was for Al), and an old Blake Babies for $5 (this I have been looking for forever in the bargain bins). Anyway, after hearing the DCFC album, I was blown away by the first song. The melody, ahhhh! As usual, Ben Gibbard touched my heart. It starts out with keyboard sounds similar to The Postal Service songs. Too bad they sold out to a mainstream label, Atlantic, and what's up with the Manhattan reference? Anyway, here's my fave song at the moment (and I thought I liked Soul Meets Body) -

Marching Bands of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie

If I could open my arms and span the length of the isle of Manhattan
I'd bring it to where you are, making a lake of the East River and Hudson
If I could open my mouth wide enough for a marching band to march out
They would make your name sing and bend through alleys and bounce off all the buildings

I wish we could open our eyes to see in all directions at the same time
Oh what a beautiful view, if you were never aware of what was around you
And it is true what you said: that I live like a hermit in my own head
But when the sun shines again I'll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in

Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole
Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound
But while you debate half-empty or half-full
It slowly rises: your love is gonna drown
