I swear. Y'all need to really HEAR that song, because it's the perfect way to cap that album off.
I'm having a hard time understanding why people are getting hung up on how 80's prom it sounds. Everything he has done post-For Emma, whether Bon Iver or his other projects, has been signaling a shift in this direction. Or at least making it so this isn't unexpected.
If that fucker sparks off a Michael Bolton blouse rock revival, I'm going to choke a bitch.
Seriously, the best thing I can think to say about it is that it sounds like a shitty karaoke library version of something good.
I'm ending this debate: it's a great song. My opinion > your opinion. We take more drugs than a touring funk band. Sing it.
Bon Iver on the Colbert Report tonight. As the creator of the Bands on TV thread, I apologize to the east coasters for the late notice.
They just played on the east coast.
