Possibly the most heart-wrenching break-up song of all time.  I’ve been a fan of Glen’s since Once- but this is just an example of the amazing emotion he puts in his songs.

“She’s like an unholy boomerang” -Stalin

Death Cab For Cutie – Clark Gable

I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London Underground when it struck me that I’d been waiting since birth to find a love that would look and sound like a movie so I changed my plans, I rented a camera and a van and then I called you I need you to pretend…
