14 jaar


Vandaag precies 14 jaar verscheen Boxer, de plaat die er voor zorgde dat ik steeds meer ging roepen dat The National De Beste Band is. Wat een pracht, draai 'm nog geregeld van begin tot eind.
 
Wat zo knap is, overal op die plaat van die zinnetjes die blijven hangen:
  • "It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky."
  • "Another un-innocent, elegant fall into the un-magnificent lives of adults."
  • "Ada, I can hear the sound of your laugh through the wall."
  • "You might need me more than you think you will."
  • "Underline everything, I'm a professional."
  • "Everything I love gets lost in the drawers."
  • "Showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters."
  • "Hold ourselves together with our arms around the stereo for hours."
  • "I'll get money, I'll get funny again."
  • "Fifteen blue shirts and womanly hands."
  • "I want to start over, I want to be winning; Way out of sync from the beginning."
  • "Sometimes you go "la di da di da di da da" until your eyes roll back into your head."
  • "Let me come over, I can waste your time, I'm bored."
  • "You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends."
  • "We're half awake in a fake empire."
  • "You're the tall kingdom I surround; Think I better follow you around."
  • "You were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges, like I do now."
  • "In the corners of front yards, getting in and out of cars."
  • "Cinderella through the room, I glide and swan 'cause I'm the best slow dancer in the universe."
  • "I've been dragging around from the end of your coat for two weeks."
  • "Turn the light out, say goodnight, no thinking for a little while. Let's not try to figure out everything at once."
  • "If you think you're gonna faint, go out in the hallway. Let them all have your neck."
