This might go down as the greatest mainstream pop song ever.


Nothing can describe this song more than bliss. It’s comforting, familiar, and warm, but looking deeper than that it’s a sad song about trying to make your way through life and failing at providing something stable for yourself, inevitably falling into a dark path.


Even the fact that this now reminds me of *shudder* ITV coverage of England football can't ruin a masterpiece.
