Throwback Thursday: The National




As I finish watching the new trailer for The National documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, as well as stare starry-eyed at The National's Toronto tour date which is penciled into my calendar - I figure it's a good idea to throw back to an underrated tune off the famed Brooklyn rock band's 2005 release Alligator.

I always thought this song was a gem. Characteristically honest and raw, the song's lyrics are complemented by gorgeous chords that build over the course of the three-minute song. Also, something about the song title is just dreamy.
