First of all, I don't know if there's gonna be a better song title this year. Second, aside from the first two tracks off the new Menomena album, I've listened to this song more than anything else I've downloaded so far this year. And I've had it for 2 days. It is that song of 2007. So far.
I just can't stop listening. Every second I get. Yesterday I met some friends at Arbys in the Manhattan Mall (barely a 4 minute trip) and I listened to it on the walk both ways. The rest of the album is fairly inconsistent so far, tho there is one other pretty great song (the first single, On Call) and three or four other decent ones on there. I just keep coming back to McFearless. I don't think a song has stood out this much from the rest of a record since The Walkmen put The Rat on Bows and Arrows.
I wanna hear this song in an X-Games commercial. Or on an NBA Playoffs promo. Or on the soundtrack to the next great racing game for XBox 360. This is the type of song I want to hear when somebody is trying to get me excited about something. I can't wait to see it live. I hope they play New York soon.
