Cape Canaveral

Album: Conor Oberst (2008)
  • John Norris of MTV News asked Oberst where this song came from. He replied: "That song is, I guess, more of nostalgia of watching rocket launches on TV, that kind of thing. I've never been to a rocket launch, unfortunately. I'd like to see one though."
