  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi hope this song brings a remarkable tear to the throat, and i hope it still does. thanks in part to the Eels selling really big with Beautiful Freak, i dont want my copy of that album to sell really low as this year's End Times.
    i also hope the Eels dont bring me down with that nonsense
