    @jericsynergy I don’t know about that. Her latest albums was better reviewed than anything by The Decemberists has ever been.

    @tinkerbom thats awesome… I didn’t know that but it makes the song so much more powerful even though it’s already just plain old beautiful.

    The thing that stood out when I first heard this song was that sweet walking bass line! It drives this amazing song right along.

    ONE person disliked because they don’t like crying to a good piece of music.

    @levanyzzuf Alright. To each their own. I can see where someone could get those opinions.

    @auteur116 I don’t like The Decemberists and I used that particular term because I find it amusing and wasn’t feeling inspired, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know anything about them. I find their literary allusions shallow and misplaced and their imitations of 60′s folk much all too damn hooky for my taste.

    @levanyzzuf I agree that Marianne’s version is amazing, but calling this “hipister shit” is just lame. You can’t be a true music fan if you put down stuff you barely know is my philosophy.

    Marianne Faithfull extracted something beautiful from this hipster shit. Check out her version if you haven’t already.

    @anniej1630 I realised I’d never heard the original and Tom did it so beautifully, I thought I ought to! :)

    @tinkerbom Oh thanks I can sort of relate it to the lyrics bit by bit haha; I am going to have to Google the lot of them so thank you for that :)

    @JonnyJustSpunkiied I did see confirmation of it in an interview somewhere, though I forget the site. It’s a common motif in folklore, though, all around the world. Animal brides won through kindness and lost through greed or cruelty. I think pretty much every culture has at least one version. I’ve seen frog wife and swan wife and otter wife and seal wife stories, and forget how many others.
