Scenic World by Beirut is… breathtaking?

Beirut - Gulag Orkestar

“The lights go on
The lights go off
When things don’t feel right
I lie down like a tired dog
Licking his wounds in the shade

When I feel alive
I try to imagine a careless life
A scenic world where the sunsets are all
Breathtaking”

Beirut – Scenic World (featured in the third season of the series Weeds). The alternate, non-album version of this track is one of the best songs I’ve heard in months. The chord progression is probably the world’s most commonly used, but it doesn’t matter. This song is golden.
