The Daily Ditty 4.2.13

I’ve been in love with the music of Arcade Fire since I first heard their debut, Funeral, back in 2005.  A friend handed me a burned CD of theirs and raved at me about needing to listen to them.  I declined at first, because the name of the band sounded really stupid.

A few days later I popped the CD into my old 95 Le Sabre’s CD player and they were okay.  The first song, Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels), was unlike anything I’d ever heard before.  It was different and just really really good.  I quickly found myself listening to the album over and over again, and to this day Funeral is one of the few albums I can listen to over and over again.

I’ve been a huge fan ever since, eagerly looking forward to anything they produce.  My wife and I finally saw them in concert back in 2011 and it was like a religious experience.  Just superb.  Enjoy:
