The New Pornographers
November 30, -0001 in Vancouver
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
The New Pornographers are a Canadian indie rock group formed in 1997 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their sound is influenced by that of such power pop bands as The Cars and Cheap Trick, but they use much more sophisticated rhythms and chord changes. Although it was widely reported that the New Pornographers got their name from a pamphlet put out by televangelist Jimmy Swaggart condemning rock 'n' roll as "the new pornography," Carl Newman has stated that he came up with the name after watching Shohei Imamura's The Pornographers (1966).

Thoughts on Songs with The New Pornographers
No matter how many times I listen to this song, it will still be hard to point out the one that has given up the most in this relationship. To me, they look over-bored and tired by trying to prove things to each other. Maybe this is why they repeat this "tell me where to be, I'll be there". They're not willing to struggle anymore. They're just want to fit in the perfect partner description of theirs and finish off with this.
Jumping of the canyon doesn't sound like the ideal case in general - unlike here. I guess here it's more about radically changing your life, taking the big leap, taking a great risk and break out of the things that keep you chained, in this case inspired by someone else, someone that breaks this rule of misery.
