Neutral Milk Hotel - Two Headed Boy Part 2
I know every music blog on earth is mentioning it but I can't let the week pass without wishing happy 10th birthday to one of the best albums ever, Neutral Milk Hotel's second and final record, In the Aeroplane, Over the Sea. Here's the gorgeous closer, Two Headed Boy Part 2. What a melody in that bridge, my God. (Truly, the whole album is breathtakingly beautiful.) Listen for the sound of Jeff taking off his guitar and leaving just after he sings the album's final line, "But don't hate her when she gets up to leave." It's like he knew that was it, he wasn't coming back. We miss you Jeff.
