I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees; i’ll never marry but Ohio don’t remember me

My daughter hates it; my youngest son, meanwhile, always sings along with me – especially at the part about being taken to Ohio in a swarm of bees. The National’s melody, meanwhile, wakes you up at night. Genius.

    The man/song emanate that certain aura of decadence – I love it!

    brilliant album. Not a sour note on the whole thing.

    From the subtle underlying tension between the bassline and keyboards; through a poetic marriage of lyric and melody, alongside those few haunting bars sung acappella, this is a song that is made to be heard and not just seen. As a bass player, Warren, do you find this song has more of a melodic bass line than most other songs?

    Um, that guys vocals and beard are hot. Smokin’.
