Welcome to another La Musique Mercredi, which I think I might also begin referring to as Lazy Writing Wednesday.
I was at this show. It was really good:

Stepping away from the shredding for a while, here's some shitty footage of one of my favourite all time songs. Sometimes I wish I was more into Coldplay, because all of their videos are fucking impeccable. But then I remember how fucking awful Coldplay are, and I feel a lot better about my choices. As a slightly cycling-related aside, I bet Anthony Tan likes Coldplay. He seems like the kind of guy who would like Coldplay.
Anyway, here's a song about dying, which never seems to happen to the right people.
I reckon in 2002 I quoted this song so many times - to so many different girls in different countries - that I probably should've been paying John K. Samson royalties. This is a pretty nice stripped-back version, which almost allows me to overlook how godawful the Weakerthans have been since Left And Leaving.
And, while we're in a quieter mood:
See you tomorrow.
