Released: September 2004
Cue kick drum. Cue thudding bassline. Cue keyboards. Is there any intro more guaranteed to make the hairs on your arms bristle in anticipation? From there, the song surges elegantly to a climax so passionate it'd make even the most granite-hearted cynic gaze, clench-jawed, into the middle distance. What's it about? Win Butler's images of paranoia and concealment ("Come on hide your lovers…") hint that it's a song about self-doubt – but the track's sheer, ecstatic propulsiveness suggests otherwise. Like a lot of Arcade Fire songs, it carries a colossal emotional punch precisely because the lyrics are so indistinct.
