A thread for this very special baby. The opener of the first album, the first big single. It never gets old and sounds so big, even next to the monsters like Vlad and Switchblade Smiles. They say it's a love song, and about having something you love so much, the only way to deal with it is to kill it. My absolute favourite version is the one from iTunes 2007, if you don't have it, go and buy it and listen to it, it's one of the best official recordings ever, Tom's voice is extra special there. I love iTunes 2009 too, it's so loud and terrifying. This is another favourite
