Bend to Squares – Death Cab for Cutie
I love this song. The lyrics are poetry. Pretty decent poetry, at that.
Even more, I love the story behind the lyrics. How bits & pieces were stitched together into something completely new. The way the poetry finds the poet, that a poet is really just listening to the under current.
That is all.
“If you watch Death Cab’s episode of VH1 Storytellers they play this song and Ben said he got the inspiration for this song after reading a review of a book about Frank Sinatra. ‘He lived a very interesting life and I kind of cherry picked some of the little couplets of words and things that I really liked and it became this song.’ – Ben”
