Death Cab for Cutie - Plans



I'm sure everybody's heard of Death Cab, and you're probably on your way to best buy to buy this CD right now, but I feel obligued to make a post about them since they are one of the best bands out there. They're new CD is a fantastic edition, it grows on you and features many lyrics and themes to ponder.

For example,
The title, Plans, refers to the theme that every plan you make is like "a tiny prayer to Father Time". Life is random, you plan on getting married, moving into a house, getting up the next morning, but you never really know. You could die tomorrow. That's my take on it, at least. Pretty dark stuff, but it's to be expected from this band.

Here's two of my favorite tracks:
MP3 What Sarah Said
MP3 I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Actually, the title of the album was inspired by a joke the band likes:

Q: "How do you make God laugh?"
A: "Make plans."

I Will Follow You Into The Dark makes me burst into tears.
death cab for cutie's new album is completely amazing, the new song "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" is one of the best songs i have ever heard.. and i listen to a LOT of music. its sad that he had to write this album about the girl he knew who died. but im glad its there nonetheless. it is written perfectly and it puts you in his head so you can swim around in it.. the feelings and emotions he lets out in this album are some that all of us feel and im glad we now have a musical outlet for when we feel like this.
