There are two reasons this Arcade Fire song/video is showing up here today. First, ‘Here Comes The Night Time’ has sneakily become one of my favorite songs this year. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. Listen, I know the song is excessively long and those lyrics and blahblahblah. I GET IT. But here’s the thing: I kind of love it, despite all its excess and ridiculousness (and maybe even because of it).
The other reason this song/video is showing up here is because of the below video someone put together for the tune and posted last week. It is wonderful and awkward and perfect in every way and I can’t stop watching it. Enjoy.
