I’m growing fonder and fonder of these boys. First was just Boxer. Over and over again. Then I started to listen to the other albums, too. I’ve fallen in love with each and every one of them. Most recently with the new one, High Violet.
But the first love is always somewhere in your heart, right? So here’s one of my haunting firsts from Boxer. Cause as someone said, there are songs that will haunt you during your waking hours, stir you from your deepest sleep and eventually finish by broodingly melting you.
You have to do it running
But you do everything that they ask you to
Cause you don’t mind seeing yourself in a picture
As long as you look faraway, as long as you look removed
(Mistaken For Strangers by The National)
