I might have thought that this song was too catchy when it came out and that Bright Eyes has definitely changed, for the best or for the worst (I’m not quite sure yet). But I do enjoy the kangaroo in the video, the cuteness of that girl as well as (and that’s my heart taking over my head) Conor’s dismembered dancing. I know, every indie band has a video like this. Oh well. Here’s to you, Mr. Oberst.

Death-obsessed, like a teenager
Sold my tortured youth, pissed in vinegar
I’m still angry with no reason to be
